Garca Pimienta at UD Las Palmas and Manuel Pellegrini at Real Betis. Two coaches who have carried out a fantastic start to the season. With permission from Girona, Las Palmas has acquired the role of revelation. Betis, after a hesitant start, has not lost since September 16. Two technicians who have managed to straighten the helm of their teams in recent times.
The Chilean arrived to replace Rubiwhich in turn took the place of Quique Setin. In Las Palmas, Setin’s departure left a gap that was not filled until the arrival of Garca Pepper. An invisible rope a club backpack that they face looking towards Europe.
The recent history of both teams cannot be understood without them. Pepe Mel is the second coach with the most games at Betis, where he got two promotions. Although Madrid could not achieve it in Las Palmas, I left a good memory. Quique Setin got players like Viera, Tana or Roque will make you fall in love with their game in First Division. His time in Las Palmaswith a very defined style of play, marked a before and after. An objective that Betis failed to meet. Two coaches who, without being on the front line, They will experience the Villamarn match in a special way.
