Rubén Pardo, best second player in February

The Leganés from La Rioja has been chosen by LaLiga. The award is voted by LaLiga based on statistics. Pardo scored two goals in the five wins of the month.


Leganés played a (almost) perfect month of February with five wins and a single loss. Asier Garitano and his return grabbed the headlines in a period in which only one man dared to shade the gigantic figure that is Bergara's coach south of the capital. This is Rubén Pardo, who had a rifle in hand (three consecutive direct free kicks, two of them in this February), led the medullary cucumber and, incidentally, has earned LaLiga recognition as player of the month.

The body has highlighted from this former Royal Society having acted as a “compass” for the blue and white in this resurgence south of the capital where competition was high. Sabin Merino (three goals), Javi Eraso (three assists) or Omeruo (untouchable starter in these six games) could also have opposed an award without open voting.

This is not a process in which fans vote, but is chosen by an internal jury of the competition based on the data provided by the Media Coach platform. In the First Division, there is voting by fans, who exercise their right of choice through the EA Sports platform.The statistical-scientific aspect of the award gives more objective value, if possible, to an award that a cucumber soccer player had never won. Neither in First, nor now this season in Second. So Pardo opens the blue and white locker just at a time when any shot of morale counts.

After losing in Cartagena, the pepineros face the complicated visit of Castellón tomorrow with the need to win again and redirect their pursuit to the top of the classification. Precisely the presence of Rubén Pardo is taken for granted in the eleven with the possible novelty of Luis Perea accompanying the Riojan, the best Second-team player in the past (and glorious for Lega) month of February.
