Voro’s fifth stint as VCF head coach draws to a close this Sunday at Mestalla

The coach picked up 40 of Valencia CF’s 46 points this season

This Sunday, in front of the Valencianista crowd at the derby against Villarreal, Voro González will bid farewell to his role as head coach after bringing the season to a close. It’s been a season in which Valencia CF have steadily improved, after having got through a very difficult period when the Valencian coach took over on Matchday 17. At that time Valencia CF were dangerously placed in 16th position with only 16 points to their tally, level on points with Leganes and 4 points clear of Sporting in the relegation zone. Voro was called upon again by Valencia CF, who were going through a bad sporting situation after Prandelli had handed in his resignation. Once again, the club man took charge, aiming to turn the season around and pull away from the drop zone.  As head coach, he has picked up 40 of VCF’s 46 points in the league, with 12 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses in 25 LaLiga games.

Before Prandelli’s arrival he had also had to take over the team, claiming two vital wins against Alavés at Mestalla and Leganés at Butarque. During his previous spells on the bench, Voro brought the team back to life in the last games of the 2007/08 season as VCF were edging towards the drop zone, and in the 2012/13 season he claimed a Champions League win against Lille before Valverde’s arrival. Last season he also took over from Nuno, picking up a cup win against Barakaldo and a draw in the league against FC Barcelona.

Voro’s record as VCF head coach, bearing in mind he always takes over at complicated times, is very positive; from 35 games he’s taken 18 wins, that’s a win ratio of over 50%, 5 draws and 11 losses, with 57 goals for and 53 goals against.
