Villarreal Football Club is pleased to announce the successful completion of negotiations to appoint Marcelino as the club’s new manager. The highly respected former head coach of Olympique Marseille has agreed to assume the role, thus marking his return to Villarreal after an impressive seven-year hiatus.
Marcelino’s appointment comes as no surprise, as he was widely anticipated to take over from the outgoing manager, Pacheta. Given his previous experience and accomplishments, the decision to bring Marcelino back to Villarreal was met with enthusiasm from both the club and its supporters.
Having previously managed Villarreal from 2013 to 2016, Marcelino left a lasting impression during his tenure. Under his guidance, the club achieved remarkable success, reaching the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League and securing a fourth-place finish in La Liga.
Marcelino’s remarkable track record further solidifies his reputation as an outstanding manager. His tactical acumen, leadership skills, and ability to maximize the potential of his squad make him an ideal fit for Villarreal’s ambitions. The club looks forward to witnessing his strategic prowess and relentless determination to achieve excellence on the field.
