Record of Diego Martínez

The technician Diego Martinez has become the coach of the grenade that most consecutive games has led the rojiblanco team in First division by reaching 69 in the clash that ended with a victory (4-1) for his team this Thursday against the Eibar.

The Galician coach has reached this figure by joining the 38 league matches of last season in full with the 31 in the Santander League that he leads the team this year.

No other coach in the ninety-year history of the grenade, who turns 25 in the First Division this season, has reached the number of matches in a row now achieved by Diego Martínez, according to the Twitter account @GCFstats.

Diego Martínez is placed on this list ahead of the legendary rojiblanco coach José Iglesias ‘Joseíto’, who reached 68 consecutive meetings with Granada in the First Division between 1974 and 1976.

The young coach commented at the press conference after the game against Eibar when he learned this fact that he felt “very proud and happy” and highlighted the work of his players and his entire coaching staff to achieve this.

The current coach of Granada, who is also the coach with the highest percentage of victories in the history of the club, does not stop breaking records with the rojiblancos and when the end of the season is reached he will become the first coach in the ninety years existence of the entity that completes three consecutive campaigns on its bench.
