Cartagena seeks reaction with Luis Carrión

He Cartagena, which already has Luis Carrion as his third coach of the season after passing Borja Jimenez and Jose Manuel Aguilar by the bench, is one of the teams of LaLiga SmartBank that more technicians have “burned”.

Now he is chasing a professional who last season descended with Numancia de Soria to Second B what other teams that have changed the negative dynamics such as Lugo, Alcorcón, Tenerife and Zaragoza have achieved so far.


With the departure of Aguilar, who returns to the black-and-white subsidiary after three days at the head of the first team and a scarce booty of one point out of nine possible -the tie to one against Real Zaragoza at the Cartagonova stadium, which came in between the defeat by 2-1 in Alcorcón and by 3-0 in Tenerife-, there are already ten coaches who this season have lost in the Second Division after 21 days of the first league round.

The Cantabrian took the reins after the eighteenth round of the championship and took the team being the sixteenth classified with 19 points and two above the relegation zone to Second B.

Carrión, a Barcelona coach who will be 42 years old on February 7 and who was at Numancia until June and before at Melilla and Córdoba, takes the reins of a team that is nineteenth in the table and has fallen to that area of punishment after the draw to one that occurred on Monday night in the match between Sabadell and Lugo at Nova Creu Alta.


Cartagena, which is the most beaten team in the category, is in clear decline and, after its good start to the championship -15 points out of 30 possible- it has only been able to achieve another five of the 33 that have been put into play Since then, the elimination of the first exchange in the Copa del Rey against Pontevedra, from Segunda B.

What the club chaired by Francisco Belmonte seeks with Carrión is a revulsion that Aguilar has failed to be and that formula has given good results this same campaign to Lugo with Mehdi Nafti (25 points out of 39 possible), Alcorcón with Juan Antonio Anquela (14 points out of 30 possible), Tenerife with Luis Miguel Ramis (13 points out of 24 possible) and Zaragoza with Juan Ignacio Martínez (7 points out of 9 possible).

Only Albacete, which is bottom with 15 points despite having already had three technicians, has not found the key.
