Although the stands chanted his name showing all their support for the miracle coach and blaming the team’s situation on the Sports Directorate. A day later, at 12:36 pm, the club informed Anquela that he was no longer technical for the yellows.
Everything indicates that tomorrow the sports management, with Emilio Vega at the head, will officially meet the new coach that everything indicates that it is Fran Fernández, a coach who saw all the Alcorcón matches on site, as he was publishing on his social networks . Fran will return to the yellow bench after leaving two seasons ago to sign for the Tenerife club, who threw him out without being able to finish the season.
Juan Antonio Anquela, club legend adding up to 244 official matches between its two stages, becomes the first coach dismissed in the Second Division and, in general, of the two professional categories of Spanish football.
“Today is a sad day for the ADA as an institution. No one of those who are part of this club would have wished this outcome for a coach who represents so much for this pottery family and who last season showed great dedication and ability to lead the enormous effort of the staff in achieving permanence “, reads the notice.
Your “soul team”
Last year, the coach returned with the almost impossible mission of saving the team from a relegation that seemed safe. “I can’t say no to Alcorcón. It is my team of the soul “, said the technician then. Having achieved the objective ‘in extremis’, Anquela renewed for another season, although with one condition: that they arm him with a competitive team so as not to go through as many difficulties as last year.
However, several of Alcor’s most important players left, such as José León, Dani Ojeda, Richard Boateng and Kelechi Nwakali.. And their substitutes, for the moment, have not matched neither their level nor their benefits. The start of the potter club in the League has not been good, with one victory and five defeats in the first six days.
And although there was still a lot of room for improvement, The club’s Sports Directorate has decided to dispense with the Linares coach, with whom the entity has not had the patience that it had last year with Mere Hermoso. Then, Alcor endured for ten games and eight consecutive defeats to the coach of Puerto de Santa María, before Anquela arrived to replace him. Now, the glass with ‘Anquelotti’ seems to have been filled before.
