Escriba December’s best Coach

Villarreal have been given a pre-Deportivo La Coruna boost this Saturday as boss Fran Escriba has been named La Liga’s best Coach for December.

Escriba notably guided Villarreal to wins against Atletico Madrid and Sporting Gijon, which moved the side to fourth in the table and just four points behind second-placed Sevilla.

Their form since then has dropped, however, as a 1-1 draw with Barcelona was followed by a Copa del Rey exit to Real Sociedad at the last-16 stage.
