Molina throws Villarreal
The loss to the Levant in the discount forces out Villarreal coach, now sacked Garrido this course
The match between Levante and Villarreal went in regulation. Carlos Marchena, who just took a few minutes on the pitch at the Ciutat de Valencia, committed his second foul in a row, hit both with individual yellow cards that carried the expulsion. A story repeated two days ago in La Romareda, when an unnecessary lack midfield preceded the winning goal against the team from Zaragoza in the discount Castellon. Against Levante, after Marchena conduct a side missing, Molina decided to make the last change and took the pitch to Nilmar, who was at the barrier of two players to intercept the kick of the lift. Camuñas entered and placed in the position occupied by the Brazilian. Strong threw Ruben Suarez Barca, in an action based on that for the same player made three days ago and in the same position against Espanyol Cornella and gave the victory to the Levant. Camus, in an act instinctively ducked. Diego Lopez could only divert the ball in the bottom right. The rejection went to Xavi Torres pushed the ball into the goal on the sidelines.
“We did not expect this outcome, but the party was for anything and has decided the strategy.” They were the last statements of Jose Francisco Molina ahead of Villarreal. Recently completed the match against Levante, the club management decided to remove the technical Castellon who took charge of first team squad 11 days ago Castellon, replacing Juan Carlos Garrido. In just two seasons ago it happened after firing Ernesto Valverde, the coach in charge of continuing the project of Manuel Pellegrini after five years of success, Fernando Roig thought the solution was at home. First with Garrido and then with Molina. However, a point in the last five games played, have led the leader to dispense with Molina, promoted from the reserves, whose background as first team coach in the three months to address are summarized in three wins, three draws and five defeats . Villarreal is in 17 th place at the gates of the decline with 27 points, three above Sporting, and pending what happens in Cornellà between Espanyol and Racing.
Molina, despite their good start as coach of Villarreal (two draws in El Madrigal against Valencia and Barcelona, ??and a win against Sevilla at home), could not hide the evils of yellow set, forged from the direction from before starting the season. “We lost a finger without Cazorla” Marcos Senna went on to say, the captain of the set of Castellón, at 35 years, remains the gold standard in midfield following the sale of Asturias to Málaga for 19 million euros. “It was a strange season. We did not know who was going to sell, “Borja Valero resulted. Accustomed to success, Fernando Roig, his son, Fernando Roig and Jose Manuel Llaneza Negueroles, the low turnout decision, almost the proceeds invested for the transfer of Cazorla, 17 million in the signings of Camuñas (2.5), Zapata ( 7) and De Guzman (8). None of the three has given the required level by a team in recent seasons has moved into the elite of Spanish football has haunted Europe. De Guzman, called to replace Cazorla, just told to Molina, who only used it in 45 minutes in his 11 matches on the bench in El Madrigal. In the last two days has not even been summoned.
The absence of Cazorla, injuries that ravaged Villarreal at the start of the course (the most severe, Rossi, with torn ligament in his right knee, the best solution for the whole player yellow) and the hugely damaging to the League of Champions with six defeats in as many games, diminished the confidence of a team that was no longer reliable. A Garrido cost him his job. And Molina, his replacement, too. A week ago, the club vice president Castellon, Jose Manuel Llaneza, said it was time to blame, but solutions. In the absence of 11 days, and water to the neck, it’s up again Villarreal rectify and seek emergency coach.
