Sergio Pellicer and Juande: the miracle coach and the scorer defender

It is one year since the debut of Sergio Pellicer and Juande Rivas with Málaga in a delicate match against Ponferradina. Things are going a little better now.


As today, a year ago, there were two stenos in Malaga that have been decisive in stopping the sporting fall of a team that was adrift under the disastrous hands of Abdullah Al Thani. We talk about Sergio Pellicer and Juande Rivas.

The coach took over the leadership of the first team after the controversial dismissal of Víctor Sánchez del Amo in a vital match against Ponferradina. Malaga had 23 points, only one above relegation. Any result other than adding the three points would be dramatic.

Pellicer took courage and made his debut for Juande, a central defender who had participated in some calls without making his debut. It was a situation of extreme urgency. And the kid did better than good. Málaga won an agonizing victory with a goal from Antinín, the first brick to build the wall of salvation. Since then, Juande has played a total of 27 games. It so happens that, from that call, only three players remain in the team, the aforementioned Juande, Hicham and the young goalkeeper Gonzalo. Much change!

The scorer defender

Juande has scored four goals and is, at the moment, the defender who has scored the most goals in professional football. This is a specialty where Sergio Ramos stands out, who did eleven last season. This course takes two. Alberto Escassi scored seven goals with Numancia. This year he has achieved one. Juande's records would have increased had it not been for the untimely injury from which he has already recovered.
