Paco López may be the longest in Orriols

The Silla coach, if he fulfills his new contract until June 2022, would direct the Granota team more than four seasons.


Paco López can make history in the Levant. Silla's coach, who officially extended his contract until June 30, 2022 yesterday, could be the longest-time coach on the Orriols bench in 110 years since he took the reins after the dismissal Juan Ramón López Muñiz surpassing illustrious names like Juan Puig, Guillermo Villagrá, Lelé or Luis García, who stayed three seasons in the club. If the entire contract is fulfilled, the Valencian would exceed four seasons on the bench, granting the greatest historical stability in the coach's figure.

"This Paco López-Levante marriage can build a great project," Catalán said in the presentation of the new sports area with Manolo Salvador and David Navarro leading the way last summer. Ensuring that "I would love to have time in the club". The purpose was clear. Both sides. After the renovation, López confessed that "I have been a member, player and now coach. I cannot ask for more. I am where I want and where they want me. It is a pride to continue being coach of the Levante Unión Deportiva" for the club media. A man who knows all levels of the club. Sense of belonging.

Paco López is, in fact, on the prowl of beating Juan Ignacio Martínez as coach with more matches in the First Division. The Alicante has 76 games in the top category, for 62 of Silla. This season he would overcome, with still 26 games to play.

In addition, the current Levante coach is the only coach who does not have a negative balance in the elite of Spanish football in the general calculation of his clashes in LaLiga, with 24 wins, 14 draws and 24 losses.

But, beyond numbers, the legacy of Paco López in the Levant is measured with other rods. Connoisseur of the feeling of the stands, with the slogan for the flag of the famous anvil of adversity, that of Silla has wanted to vary the historical direction of a club accustomed to developing a dynamic, cheerful football and, why not say it, risky.
