SD Eibar coach Jose Luis Mendilibar has been named the LaLiga Santander Manager of the Month for February after overseeing a fine run of results during the last month.

This accolade - which is awarded by Santander, the competition's main sponsor, and voted for by the LaLiga.es writers - was presented by Iker Andicoechea Larragán.

Eibar's five outings during February included three handsome victories as the Armeros cruised to back-to-back 4-0 triumphs at Valencia CF and at home to Granada CF, before putting Malaga CF to the sword in a convincing 3-0 win at Ipurua. Meanwhile, their two remaining fixtures yielded a draw and a solitary defeat. This sequence of results, which saw the Basques notch an impressive 13 goals and concede just four, has propelled Mendilibar's men to within striking distance of the European qualification places.
