ALCORCÓN – REAL VALLADOLID Yellow benches with a violet-white past

When Alcorcón visited the José Zorrilla in the first round, they did so with a brand new coach, as the 2-0 defeat marked Jorge Romero’s debut in the first potter team. His promotion from the yellow subsidiary then caused an internal promotion that, despite the Andalusian’s subsequent dismissal, remained in force, and for which Joseph Capdevilaex Real Valladolid, he went on to sit on what until then was his bench. Thus, he left his tandem with another ex, David Rodríguez, a young man from Valladolid who directs the youth team of the División de Honor.

A long time has passed since ‘Crackdevila’ passed through Pucela; specifically, 17 years since his signing from Pontevedra, with whom he had previously debuted in Second. In three seasons, and before leaving for Real Murcia, he played 90 games, in which he scored ten goals and he left for posterity the second best ‘no goal’ seen in Zorrillaonly surpassed by Zidane’s roulette, thanks to a distant rabona in front of the Ejido Sports Center with which he surprised the goalkeeper, who avoided the goal on one of those Localia soccer afternoons.

After passing through different clubs of Second and Second B, played in Bolivia until two years agowhen he returned to Spain and signed for Unión Adarve de la Tercera Madrid. Attracted by the Alcorcón project, he hung up his boots last season, when became part of David Rodríguez’s coaching staffwhile leading a cadet team. With the aforementioned promotion of Romero, he took charge of a young subsidiary that occupies playoff positions in the always difficult Madrid Third Division, in which other subsidiaries such as Atleti compete.

A ‘JASP’ at the potter’s helm

Unlike Capdevila, Rodríguez did not make a career as a footballer, although he already has a extensive career despite his 29 yearswhich includes steps through performance teams such as Betis CF of Regional Aficionados or Pedroñeras of the Tercera Manchega, where, together with Manu Olivas, his second, today framed in the discipline of Pucela, formed the youngest coaching staff in Spanish football at the national level in 2019.

Shield/Flag Alcorcón

In continuous training (in addition to being a coach, he has the title of sports director), he faces his second season in Alcorcónwhere he stressed with the responsibility of implementing a methodology that has favored that this same campaign two of his players, Isra Garcia and Yago ParedesThey have become part of the dynamics of the first team, in the image and likeness of what happened with Fresneda, like them, from 2004, in The Annexes.

In these, on the other hand, he did not have a opportunity like the ones he has carved out away from homesince, although he was part of his international project, he barely got to lead at Real Valladolid for a year, although not as main coach, but as second to Iván Cabezudo, today Rubén Albés’s assistant at Lugo, at Regional Cadet who won the title and went undefeated in 2016-17.

It so happens that Last day Borja Fernández’s Juvenil was defeated precisely by his teamthanks to a 2-1 draw that included a pottery comeback despite the fact that the Valladolid team played for an hour with one more player. It was their second victory in the two occasions they have hosted Pucela at home, a result that would be appreciated by the first yellow team in this Sunday’s duel in search of the feat of salvation. They had worse luck as a foreigner in the first leg, in which, like the first team in Zorrilla, they clearly lost.
