The Malaga CF returned to work this tuesday in the middle of a wave that threatens to devastate the fourth coach in a year. In the middle of January 24, just one year after the dismissal of José Alberto López as coach of the Martiricos teamthe future of Pepe Mel is in its lowest hours and no one dares to guarantee 100% that he will make it to Sunday’s match against Sporting de Gijón. However, at least for now, he continues to lead the blue and white team. Even when?…
All the unknowns were cleared up after 6:00 p.m., at the moment when the coach and the footballers left the team to start training. Since the last working session on Sunday, there have been many hours of reflection that all the actors in the cause have had to face. Can Málaga CF consider another coach? Does Pepe Mel have the ability to reverse the sporting future of the team? There are endless questions that must be reconsidered in the Martiricos offices. This Tuesday were some responses. Maybe on Thursday they are very different. Let alone think about next Monday.
Despite the fact that the future of the coach has the leading role, there were novelties in the squad that took to the field. The largest was the absence of Julian Delmas. The right-back finished the match against Burgos in pain and tests have confirmed that he is suffering from a grade I sprain of the medial collateral ligament of the right knee. For what he worked in the gym with Escassi and Genaro, key pieces right now that will have to wait to become part of Pepe Mel’s plans again.
The one who seems to have recovered from his physical ailments is Ramon. The midfielder already rejoined with the rest of his teammates last Sunday and is currently training normally. So he will be one more to face the next day.
Málaga CF will train again this Wednesday from 10:30 a.m.. With Pepe Mel? Everything indicates that it will be like this, but nothing can be taken for granted in the midst of the struggle to achieve permanence. What is clear is that the visit to Sporting de Gijón will be decisive. A victory could temper the waters. A loss or draw could end the fourth coach in a year.
