The one that the next technician of soccer of Villareal went to himself, Castellon, Spain,(The Navy, Cantabria, Spain, August 28 of1957) there is it died at dawn after suffering an attack to the heart. The technician, just yesterday, it had signed a contract with 'the yellow submarine', Villarreal, descended team this season to the Second Division. The main objective was of returning it to first division.
Their step for the stool of Sporting of Gijon, of their Sporting, between 2006 and the season 2011-12, I leave a farewell in its 'tone' matter: "Lament if I made something bad, I will be of this team all my life. I will be partner of Sporting until I die. I hope all help to the club."
Their life was not easy: their wife, Puri, in 2002, died of a skin cancer; its son Raul, 15 years, two years later in motorcycle accident; and in April of 2011 its father died, hasty while it pushed a vehicle. He said it, after the funeral one for their father: "The life has hit me strong. It could have me vulnerable fact and to finish sticking a shot or could look to the sky and to grow. I prefer the second option."
Their life was the soccer and era one of the most recognizable faces in the Spanish League. It began in the inferior categories of Racing of Santander, and later in the superior league, later on juice in Linares, Majorca, Alaves, Ourense and Gymnastic Torrelavega, club in which concluded their career like sportsman, but later on he would be also a trainer.
And as technician, Manuel Preciado, it directed teams like Racing of Santander, Levante, Alaves, Murcia or Sporting of Gijon.
