All Primera teams They have already confirmed who will be in charge of captaining from bench the project for the new season. The last one was the Lightning, who has renewed Iraola after getting the promotion of the Vallecano team at the end of last month. As usual, all clubs have been conservative, somewhat less common in previous summers. Possibly a consequence of the economic crisis of COVID, what are you doing look twice at expenses, including severance pay. Something that, for example, was taken into account with Koeman.
Continuing projects. The vast majority of the teams that served last season in the First Division will start the campaign with the same technicians with the one who finished it. Even in the case of Koeman at Barcelona, who seemed with a foot and a half outside the Camp Nou in May. They will also continue Simeone (Atlético), Lopetegui (Sevilla), Imanol Alguacil (Real Sociedad), Pellegrini (Betis), Emery (Villarreal), Coudet (Celta), Marcelino (Athletic), Arrasate (Osasuna), Álvaro Cervera (Cádiz), Paco López (Levante), Calleja (Alavés), Fran Escribá (Elche) and the three who managed to rise from Second: Vicente Moreno (Espanyol), Luis García (Mallorca) and Iraola (Rayo).
New tenants. Alone four teams they will have a different coach to last season. This is the case of Real Madrid, which after the departure of Zidane have decided to recover Ancelotti, who already led the Whites from 2013 to 2015. He Getafe He also recovers one of his previous coaches, it is about Michel, who already led the azulón team from 2009 to 2011. Bordalás, who left Getafe, begins a new adventure in Mestalla. And the latest news is that of Robert Moreno, which assumes the Granada bench after the goodbye of Diego Martínez.
The youngest and the oldest. The newly renovated Iraola He is the youngest coach in the category at 39 years old. While Pellegrini is the oldest. He is 67 years old, five years older than Ancelotti.
The most durable. Simeone, what has renovated with the rojiblanco team until 2024, he is the current Primera coach who has more time in office. Accumulate 10 seasons at the helm of Atlético (9 and a half years without interruption). The record for seasons (25) and matches (757) in the highest category is held by Luis Aragonés. The Argentine is very far from these figures, although he is closer to Pellegrini (370 games in the First Division compared to 364 for Cholo).
Spanish accent. The Spanish dominance (15), in front of outsiders (5). Being the majority of foreigners from South America (the Argentines Simeone and Coudet and the Chilean Pellegrini) than Europeans (the Italian Ancelotti and the Dutch Koeman).
Men of the house. Until four teams LaLiga have entrusted their bench to ex his players. This is how Atlético do with Simeone, Barça with Koeman, Real with Alguacil and Levante with Paco López.
76 titles. That is the number of titles that total 20 technicians during his career. Only Robert Moreno, Arrasate, Cervera, Bordalás, Paco López, Calleja, Escribá and Luis García have their track record as empty coaches. The one who has won the most from the benches has been Ancelotti (20 wound), followed by Pellegrini (12) and Emery (12). Near the podium are Simeone (10), Koeman (9), Míchel (3), Lopetegui (3), Marcelino (2), Vicente Moreno (2) Imanol (1) and Andoni Iraola (1).
