Paco López changed his life a Levante-Espanyol

Silla coach inherited the granota bench after the dismissal of Juan Ramón López Muñiz after a parakeet visit.


To speak of Levante-Espanyol is to make it the prelude to the day that changed Paco López's life. In March 2018, after a streak of poor results in Levante, where there was no victory with Juan Ramón López Muñiz on the bench, the directive of the Orriols group decided to dispense with the services of the Spaniard after drawing in the Ciutat before the Espanyiol Muñiz was struck down and Paco López, at 50 and from the subsidiary, took command after that duel against the parakeet.

With a renewed and fresh style, Paco López won the renewal for two more years, until 2020. At present, the entity and the technician have already reached an agreement to extend their relationship for two more campaigns, until June 2022. Paco López took charge of the first team, but before, he left the subsidiary ready for promotion to Third, an achievement that was achieved by Javier Olaizola, who took advantage of the good previous work and culminated in the jump to the silver category.

And that was Paco López, for a personal circumstance, who preferred to settle in Valencia, rejecting offers of higher categories after a few years in the quarry of Villarreal. Fate rewarded him somehow, giving him the opportunity to lead in the top category of national football.

This Sunday both sets will face each other in the Ciutat, with that of Silla seated and projecting their stay on the granota bench for years. Things have changed a lot more than a year later. He faces second full season in the category against a Espanyol who has not yet managed to beat as a coach.
