Luisinho returned to be a starter in April and immediately had an impact at the team as he was chosen as the best player in the month, though it was a difficult period for Deportivo after only winning one of the seven games disputed.

The RCDLC.com peña member s chose Luisinho as the player of April. The Portuguese was elected as the best player in three of the seven games played in the month (Vs. Málaga, at Real Sociedad and Vs. Real Madrid).

It was an interesting situation for the left-back, because he didn’t play any game within the last two weeks in March, and only the injury of Fernando Navarro pushed coach Pepe Mel to use him as a starter. It has been a season with ups and downs for Luisinho, with him going in and out of the lineups. The question is what will happen now that Navarro is recovered, for the visit to CA Osasuna Mel used both of them as both covered the left side on the pitch. Luisinho added 27 points in the month, the other big winner was the fullback for the right side: Juanfran Moreno, who earned 14 points.

General speaking, it was a terrible month for Deportivo, the team only won one of the seven games played in the month and the fans got frustrated as the team hasn’t secured the permanence. So, it isn’t strange that in two of the game in the month they valued the performance of the team with a “zero (Granada CF and Real Madrid).
