David Aganzo: "Marcelino always brings out the best in each player"

The Spanish Footballers Association President praises the excellent job that the Asturian coach is doing at Valencia CF

David Aganzo, who is currently the Spanish Footballers Association president, trained under Marcelino for a short while at Racing Santander. He was coming from a injury-hit season which only allowed him to play up to eight games all season. But it was enough for him to see that he is a ”great coach”.

They were reunited at VCF's Paterna Training Ground. Ten seasons on, Marcelino has been steadily growing as Aganzo himself admitted. "He has shown that he is a great coach, I was lucky to have him as a coach at Racing Santander; it’s true that I didn’t spend much time with him. I was going through a tough time because I was coming from a really bad injury but I learnt a lot about football and physical fitness. He was a really demanding coach back then, a coach that brings out the best in each player”.

Marecelino has managed to change the complexion of the side, providing up to eight players to the international fold.

"Unfortunately football is all about results and the team went through hard times last season with the results and the disgruntled fans, but that has changed completely and now the fans are looking forward to getting back to the Champions League next season".
