Valencia CFTONever in his career had he added only one victory at this point
Marcelinolives in Valencia aalmost unknown situation in his career. This year fulfills itstenth seasonas a coach of First Division and had never been seen witha single victory on day 8of League. In fact, only on two occasions at this stage of competition did he add fewer points than with Valencia at present (9 divided between one win and six draws).
The Asturian technician alwaysthe opposite effect has characterized: start competing and achieve good results from the first day. itsbest recordin day 8 he achieved itlast year con the Valencia when he added18 points, the team did not know the defeat and was2 in the classificationwith5 wins and 3 draws. Precisely, a year ago, he acknowledges that he never had such a brilliant start to the season considering the calendar he had and the constraints that had forced to reinforce the staff especially from the second half of August.Now live a nightmareprecisely for not getting the team to take off in terms of wins and points.
And is that in the previous five seasons in which he started the course sitting on a bench first, at this point had already added four or five wins. In fact,one of the best starts of the seasonI lived it in theSeville on 11-12, in which he added and was unbeaten (4 victories and 4 draws) after day 8. Then, a bad run of bad results prevented him from finishing the season.
The technician insists that he sees many more reasons to be optimistic: "We are more competitive than last year, but we have less success," sums up the coach. The truth is that last year the team markedalmost three goals per gamein the first encounters. Now it is below one goal per game.
Worst offensive record he had in theCampaign 10-11 with Racing, when you have suffered aworse start of competition.With the centabro team he added7 pointsachieved thanks to two wins and one draw. He occupied the 16th position with only 5 goals scored and 14 received. That season he was dismissed after day 16 due to poor results. Something similar had happened to him the previous year in theSaragossa. In the campaign 09-10sumaba8 pointsafter the first eight days, achieved in2 wins and 2 draws, with 11 goals scored and 17 received. Also as a technician of La Romareda before time, on day 14.
