April was a great month for Atletico Madrid striker, Antoine Griezmann. The French international scored eight goals in six La Liga matches to help his Atlético side secure a hold on the third place in the league championship table. Griezmann found the net twice each in the games against Málaga, Deportivo and Elche.
This spectacular form has seen him named as the ‘Liga BBVA Player of the Month’ for April 2015, as chosen by the writers at LFP.es and presented by Spanish bank, BBVA, who are the league’s main sponsor.
Atleti’s, Griezmann also won the award in January after scoring five in La Liga matches that particular month. The forward took some time to come to terms with his new club, settling in slowly at the Calderon but is now a permanent fixture in Diego Simeone’s starting line-up and the player has found the net this season on 22 occasions, improving his Real Sociedad best by 6 goals and with three matches to go before the end of the 2014/15 season.
