The month of April couldn’t have gone any better for Atlético de Madrid, and it just got better for one of their own.
The Rojiblancos beat Barcelona and Chelsea on their path to the UEFA Champions League final and extended an incredible run in the league, in which they have now won 9 consecutive games.
During that fantastic streak the Rojiblancos didn’t concede a single goal in la Liga, and only their Champions League foes were able to beat our defence on the very first and the very last day of the month.
The Spanish FA decided to reward the incredible defensive effort by picking Diego Godín as Player of the Month. If you ask us, it could have gone to any Atlético really, but the Uruguayan definitely was outstanding.
Not only did Goldín shut out every offence he faced in la Liga in April, he also scored an important away goal at the Coliseum which broke the deadlock during our road trip to Getafe.
Godín is the third Colchonero to receive the Player of the Month award this campaign, after Diego Costa (September) and Koke (November) picked up the honours previously this season.
