Following the departure of Juan Carlos Camacho, Manchester 62 have swiftly moved to appoint former Betis and Espanyol player Gabino Rodriguez. Gabino’s playing career spanned throughout the 80’s and 90’s where he made close to 300 appearances. The Seville born 52 year old, was a product of the Betis youth team and went on to play over 160 games for hometown club over 2 separate spells.
Whilst on a loan spell at Logroñes, Gabino was also called up to the Spanish U21 side, where he would make 5 appearances, scoring 1 goal, with it winning the UEFA U21 championships, beating Italy in the final in the summer of 1986. Gabino went on to sign for Xerez and later Ceuta where he finished his playing career.
As a coach, Gabino is now a fully qualified UEFA pro licensed, beginning his first steps into coaching at the club where he retired as a player, Ceuta, working as assistant manager of the first team. Spells at San Pedro and later a return to Ceuta to coach the youth teams followed.
In 2007, he would return to Betis being part of the technical team for the 2007-08 season. He would then become manager of 3rd Division side CD Quintar del Rey based in Castilla la Mancha. Throughout his career, Gabino was fortunate to work alongside top flight Spanish managers Javier Clemente and Luis Aragones, both of whom went on to manage the senior Spanish national team. As part of his coaching team, Gabino will bring along Carlos Inarejos, a 32 year old who is a UEFA PRO qualified coach as well as a having a degree in Psychopedagogy. Inarejos has experience of managing in the 3rd Division in Spain as well as being assistant manager at Real Murcia B.
Clearly, Manchester 62 are investing in a back room team who have a rich wealth of footballing knowledge in top leagues in Spain. Were they correct in dismissing Camacho is a debate that will run on until the time Manchester 62 take the field for their first game against Gibraltar United le viagra et l. With the transfer window closed, it will be interesting to see how well Gadino does with the players he has at his disposal.
