For the first time in RCDLC.com history, two players are claiming the award of player of the month; Aranzubia lived his best month ever, while Juan Rodriguez came down from the stands to help Depor to clinch some vital points.

Interesting month for Deportivo; the Galician team started February with a big defeat against Getafe (1-4), it shacked the club as the criticism towards Lotina and his players increased its intensity, even the Riazor Blues showed their indignation at the walls of the Riazor. But after it, and despite the team is not playing so well, the results have started to arrive and the team clinched some vital points.

And two players shone in the period; starting with Daniel Aranzubia; the Riojano keeper lived his best month at Depor as he made several saves that meant to earn two Man Of the Match awards (MOM), two clean sheets in the four matches disputed in February and even scored an historic goal that worth a point at Almeria.

But he wasn’t alone, Juan Rodriguez also came from nowhere to share the first position on the month; the Andalusian was sidelined by Lotina for a couple of weeks, indirectly accused of a lack of attitude, but the Andalusian midfielder came from the stands to lead the reaction of Depor against Villarreal, match that was the best presentation of Depor in the month and that was valued by the Peña members with three points –on this season only the 3-0 win over Espanyol has been valued with the same note-

Both players earned fifteen points in February, and Laureano Sanabria ‘Laure’ was third in the period as he picked 11 points plus a MOM in the match with Getafe. Rubén Pérez also continues to impress the Peña members and the Andalusian added nine points in the month. Meanwhile, Adrian added six points in the period and Lopo got five.
