Really sad news from Spain. A day after being appointed Villareal coach, Manuel Preciado passes away. He was just 54 years of age.
The longest serving La Liga manager, a man with the most beautiful moustache in the sport is no more. Here is Sid Lowe’s post on Preciado that gives a flavour of the man, his personality, and his love for the game and its players. He was a survivor beaten down again and again and again but somehow he always managed to keep Sporting Gijon in the first division of the Liga.
