The Malaga Football Club began this summer an interesting project with Juande Ramos at the front. With him, it was expected that the team would overcome the good work of Javi Gracia and that he fought to play in Europe, but this year has not been so and that has been provoking quite a stir in the environment.
Within this rarefied atmosphere came the resignation of Juande Ramos. The Spanish coach justified his decision, unusual in football today, based not on results, not considered bad at all, but that environment which he regarded as one of the main problems for the team was not positions In which it should be.
Finding a substitute for Juande Ramos has not been easy either. The first choice for the sporting director, Francesc Arnau, was his friend Oscar Garcia Junyent, but failed to convince him to leave the Austrian Red Bull Salzburg. The other names that were on the table, such as Ruby or Sergio Gonzalez, seems not entirely convinced the above Arnau areas.
In these, you will get a great opportunity to Marcelo Romero. Known as Jack, this former Uruguayan footballer wore the shirt Malaga between 2001 and 2007, and after his retirement in Cordoba Lucena, began training teams in the province of Malaga. Then in 2014, he returned to the white team to be second Javi Gracia, also following in the stage of Juande Ramos but with a less important role.
Now comes the great opportunity, because it will lead to Malaga until end of season. The commitment Cat Romero, who has been overseeing the training since the departure of Juande, is based on its knowledge of the workforce and good relations it has with those players who now will play them direct, we assume, and with more hard hand than a second coach does.
The challenge of Romero in Malaga will be important because the aspirations of the Andalusian team remain the same with which he started the season. Ranked eleven standings with 21 points after 16 days, and 7 points in sixth place, it does not look easy but it is clear that Malaga has the potential to improve their numbers.
