Quique Sánchez Flores has been chosen to replace the destitute José Miguel González Martín, ‘Michel‘, and will train the Getafe until the end of the season, as the club president said on Wednesday, Angel Torres.
The Madrid coach, who will start his third stage in Getafe at 56 years old, was on the blue bench in the team’s first season in the First Division (2004/05), when he finished in thirteenth position.
After, in 2014/2015, he managed Getafe for two months between days 18 and 24 after replacing the Romanian Cosmin Contra, who went to Chinese football in exchange for four million euros. Quique left office at the end of February for personal reasons after accumulating three victories and four defeats. It was replaced by Pablo Franco.
Six and a half years later, Quique Sánchez Flores returns to Getafe with a difficult mission, to set the course for a team that is last in The league with only one point out of 24 possible after adding a draw and seven defeats, with a balance of three goals in favor and thirteen against.
During his professional career, Quique Sánchez Flores has also directed Spanish teams such as Valencia, Atlético de Madrid and Espanyol, to the Portuguese Benfica, to the Al-Ahli and Al-Ain from the United Arab Emirates, the English Watford and the Chinese Shanghai Senhua.
