Tamarit debuted as a coach in First against Valladolid

The now second of the Leganés had to put in front of the bench of Valencia for an expulsion of Pellegrino. His next rival with the pepineros brings him good memories.

The visit of Real Valladolid to Butarque next Thursday (20:30) will bring special memories to Xavi Tamarit, second coach of Leganés. The coach debutó as first coach in Primera against the pucelanos, a fact that made it, in addition, the youngest coach to take charge of the reins of Valencia in its history.

It came in the 2012-2013 season, when Mauricio Pellegrino and his assistants (including Tamarit himself) put themselves in front of the che team. In a match against Atlético de Madrid, on November 3, 2012, Pellegrino ended up ejected. Minutes later, Carlos Compagnucci, another of his companions on the bench, saw the red for protesting. The two Argentines holed the tunnel Mestalla costumes and left only before the vertigo to Tamarit. The now assistant coach of Leganés was then just 30 years.

Pellegrino and Compagnucci were sanctioned with two games, so Tamarit had to direct the Valencia in the next two duels. The first, that of his official debut as coach in the First Division, was precisely against Valladolid in Nuevo José Zorrilla (1-1). Then he had to put at the controls against Espanyol in Mestalla (2-1) .

The two duels and a half in front of Valencia were, for Tamarit, a small dream come true. After having started in the lower che as the youngest coach, leading the first team, , even if it was an accident, and becoming a history of the Mestalla team, it marked a key moment in the career of the Sedaví coach.. from Valladolid to Butarque next Thursday will be, for him, a special match.
