Marcelino to live his second “Centenary”

The Asturian manager coached Sporting in 2005, when team celebrated it’s 100-year anniversary. This year he will relive that experience, this time with Valencia CF.


The players won’t have their first training session until this coming Tuesday, 10th July, when the coaching staff, lead by Marcelino, will begin to direct the team for the first time as part of Valencia CFs special centenary season- the second of the sort that the Asturian manager will have lived from the bench.

In 2005, Sporting de Gijóncelebrated 100 years since it’s founding on 1st July 1905. For the first half of that same year, Valencia CF’s current manager oversaw the Asturian team in the Second Division.

Marcelino will live Valencia CF’s Centenary (the team was founded in 1919) first-hand this current season, a year that is also very special for the manager himself who shall be working on the continental stage for the first time in the UEFA Champions League.
