Player Of The Month - Diego Cervero
App: 5 Goals: 5 Av. Rating: 7.69
Oviedo legend and captain Diego Cervero is now level with Carlos Munoz's all-time Real Oviedo scoring record (118) has claimed the player of the month award for the THIRD month in a row as he once again fired his team to another unbeaten month with five goals in five games.
The 30 year old hit braces against S.D. Logrones and Marino and put the gloss on the 4-0 win over Guijuelo with the fourth and final goal. Cervero was unable to add to his February tally in the 0-0 with Burgos however, after missing two clear chances against the 9th placed visiting team, but Cervero's form so far this season shows that even the best players can have blips.
The Oviedo captain's five goals now takes his tally for this season to 14 league goals and an incredible 16 league assists. In terms of SDB1 assists, teammate Vicente sits 4 behind on 12 and is followed by Pablo Rey of Ferrol on 11; a truly incredible season so far for the Oviedo club legend.
The Manager's View'First of all I would like to congratulate Diego Cervero on his fantastic achievement of tying the club's all time goalscoring record. The joint-holder of the record, our very own attacking coach Carlos Munoz would also like to extend his best wishes to Diego as our number 9 looks to make the record his own before the season is over.'
'Secondly I would like to thank our fans for their patience during the January transfer window. I know there were a lot of reports of Alex Grimaldo's future and yes Arsenal bid for him, but we know that Alex has a key part to play with us and he is more than happy to continue his development at the club.'
'I also thank our fans for their patience, I know many of you wanted to see some new signings during the transfer window and I maintain that the scouts, the board and myself were very active during the month. But after our performances during the first half of the season, I saw no available players that could gain a first-team place in our squad.'
'Our fantastic work in the Segunda Division B1 continues as we have created an even bigger gap between ourselves and our rivals and I applaud the team for their hard work once again. Despite us picking our second draw of the campaign we once again responded well and that is the key point to remember.'
'Take care and thank you for all of your support this month.'
