Sergio Pellicer (09/09/1979, Nules – Castellón) returns to Málaga CF with the sole objective, once again, of being heroic to keep the blue and white team in the Second Division. He signs until 2024 in his second spell as coach on the bench at La Rosaleda.
The Valencian knows the house, has the love of the fans and already knows what it is to stabilize the team in LaLiga SmartBank with all kinds of sports and extra-sports difficulties. He arrived in January 2020 to replace Víctor Sánchez del Amo and now returns to Martiricoswhere he was already coach of the subsidiary, to make that distance of 4 points disappear with salvation.
“A specialist in difficulties, he had to manage the COVID-19 stoppage and, on 20/21, a sports ERE and a suffocating sanction of 18 professional chips as a limit. Despite this historically complex framework, he achieved his objectives with some ease,” recalls the statement released by the club.
