Valverde made a hole in the Top-10 of the League


Ernesto Valverde now appears in the top ten coaches with the most games in the Spanish League. The Athletic coach on Sunday in Elche equaled his former teammate and friend Mendilibar in tenth position in the ranking with 448 games. Marcel Domingo, ninth in the table, now leads him by seven games.

Txingurri, the nickname by which this coach is known in the Atletico environment since his playing days, has been through five different benches in the state championship throughout his career as a coach. Athletic, in three different stages, Espanyol, Villarreal, Valencia and Barça form a curriculum that at the foreign level includes only Olympiacos, from Greece.

In his first two clubs he completed his different seasons (six in Bilbao and two in Parakeet), in the third he was fired on matchday 20, he took the fourth on matchday 24 and he directed the azulgrana to in two and a half campaigns. Since his departure, by the way, Barça has not won the League again.

Beyond the statistical data affecting the number of games directed at Valverde, it is necessary to focus on an aspect that must be appreciated in its fair measure. The current manager of the rojiblanco club is the sixth in the history of the league championship with the most victories to his credit: a total of 216.

Luis Aragonés, number 1 on the list, with 344, Miguel Muñoz with 323, Jabo Irureta with 259, Simeone with 248 and Daucik with 234 make up the top five in terms of wins achieved. Valverde’s statistics in terms of results are completed in his fifteenth position in the ratio of tied games, with a total of 109.

Three decades in LaLiga

Another fact that should be considered about the trajectory of the Gasteiz coach on the bench refers to the number of seasons they have led the First Spanish teams. Txingurri is in seventeenth position in this ranking with 14 campaigns: 2 at Athletic 2003-04 and 2004-05), 2 at Espanyol (2006-07 and 2007-08), 1 at Villarreal (2009-2010) , 1 at Valencia (2012-13), 4 at Athletic (2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17), 3 at Barça (2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20) and the recent started in the discipline of the Bilbao club. During the 2008-2009 season and then in 2010-11 and 2011-12 he coached Olympiacos in Greece.

Luis Aragonés, the leader

Luis Aragonés, with 756, is the manager with the most games in LaLiga. Jabo Irureta (612), Miguel Muñoz (608), Víctor Fernández (544), Clemente (511), Caparrós (510), Daucik (488), Toshack (480) and Marcel Domingo (455) defeated Valverde and Mendilibar ( 448) equals him in tenth place.
