Fuenlabrada dismisses Oltra, despite the round pass in the Cup

Jos Luis Oltra He is no longer the coach of Club de Ftbol Fuenlabrada. After beat UD Sanse in the Madrid derby from the penalty spot, and thus achieve the passage to the round of 32 of the Copa del Rey, the ‘kirika’ entity has ended the link that unites the Valencian coach with the club.

Oltra had a contract until next June. However, he did not manage the Fernando Torres squad again. At least in the short and medium term. Shortly before midnight on Tuesday, the entity announced the dismissal of its coach, who is leaving with his second, Fran Blasco, and his physical trainer, Marcos Chena.

11 games without winning in the League … and relegation

A decision that is especially motivated by the direction of the team in the League. Fuenla has not won eleven games in the regularity competition, has fallen to relegation places to First Division RFEF, and is three points away from permanence. The team, yes, has had to face a significant plague of injuries since the start of the league. What’s more, there have been sections in which he has accumulated no less than 12 casualties.

Interestingly, just before playing against Sanse, Oltra spoke at a press conference about his future on the ‘kiriko’ bench. “Coaches know what we do and how the world of football works. Therefore, I take care of what depends on me. I believe in the squad and in the work we do. But whatever happens, I will have a clear conscience having done all the work that is in my power, “said the coach. A day later, despite winning the northern Madrid team in the Cup, the coach was fired.

10 months in office

The Burjassot technician arrived at Fuenla on February 3 of this year. Precisely to replace Jos Ramn Sandoval, who had just been dismissed. He managed to save the team and earned the renewal, although now, he has lost his position. Recently, Oltra had entered the select club of the 10 Second Coaches who have reached 400 matches targeted in the category. Furthermore, the coach is the coach who has been active on a bench for the longest time in all of Spanish professional football: 18 consecutive seasons.

Today, it is unknown who will be his substitute. This Wednesday, the team will have a recovery session, which will lead the rest of the technical ‘staff’ of the club and in which only the players who did not play against Sanse will train. The sports department is now working to find a replacement for Oltra and, therefore, the man who will prepare the ‘Kirikos’ game this Sunday against Real Oviedo.
