The BBVA Prizes for player and manager of the month in Spain’s top two divisions for September have been named by the LFP’s principal sponsor. Those chosen in Liga BBVA were Villarreal manager Marcelino García Toral, and Club Atlético de Madrid forward Diego Costa.
In Liga Adelante, the manager’s gong went to Sergi Barjuan of RC Recreativo de Huelva, whilst Real Sporting de Gijón’s Stefan Šćepović was chosen as the September’s best player.
The committee who choose the winners is made up of professionals who work within football and are people able to distinguish the stand out performers both in Liga BBVA and Liga Adelante, without holding an allegiance to any of the clubs in either competition.
The awards will be handed out in Villarreal, Gijón and Huelva this Wednesday, and in Madrid on Friday at the respective club’s training grounds at approximately 13:00.
