Granada looks for another ‘Diego Martínez’

Granada is already working on finding a replacement for Diego Martínez. The Galician coach announced his departure last Thursday and the club, which tried to convince him to continue, has set to work to find him a worthy successor. The intention of the Nasrid team is to find a coach who maintains the philosophy introduced by Martínez and who has given such good results, ascending to First and then qualifying the team to play the Europa League last year. In the shortlist that the technical secretariat is considering there are several names, but according to As two of them are underlined in red: Francisco, Girona coach, and Pacheta, who will not continue at Huesca.

The first one already sounded to direct Granada before the arrival of Diego Matínez and he will soon face the promotion playoff with his team. Meanwhile, Pacheta has made it clear that he is fully qualified to assume the reins of a First team after touching a miraculous salvation with the Huesca team.

Other names that have come to light are Javi Gracia, formerly of Valencia, and José Luis Mendilibar, who closed his cycle at Eibar.

Whoever is the replacement for Diego Martínez, the coach who arrives will have a tough task ahead of him, as he will have to rebuild a squad with several players who end their contract this June 30.

Rui Silva has committed to Real Betis, Jesús Vallejo, Nehuén, Kenedy, Yangel Herrera and Domingos Quina end their assignment and must return to their home clubs (Real Madrid, Atlético, Chelsea, Manchester City and Watford respectively). Fede Vico also ends his contract and it will be difficult for him to renew, so there will be a lot of work in the offices to prop up the team
