The sudden dismissal of the Valencian coach Fran Scribe after the defeat by 3 to 0 before him Betis has put an end to the second stage of the most important coach of the Elche entity in the last half century of history. It is that the DT is part of the almost century-old history of Elche, since he is the strategist who has directed the most games in the First Division, with the 207 commitments that have allowed him to overcome the mythical Otto Bumbel.
Completed the stumble in Seville, Bragarnik decided to dismiss Scribe, who left the team in 18th place – relegation zone – with just 11 points in 14 games played. Immediately one of the candidates for the position that began to appear in the Spanish media was Hernan Crespo, who had one last step through São Paulo from Brazil. However, in the possibilities that he analyzes Valdanito There is also the chance to take on the Uruguay national team, which in recent days decided to end the historic cycle of the Teacher Tabárez.
Former striker of River had had one last step through the Tricolor, where he directed 53 games achieved 24 victories, 19 draws and ten defeats (57.23%) and won the 2021 Paulista Championship. Previously he had also made history with the Hawk from Florencio Varela, when he won the South American Cup and had shown great ability when he was in charge of Banfield.
It should be noted that another of those who could travel to join the Spanish team is Sebastian Beccacece, who will terminate his contract with Defense and Justice in December and in recent days has rejected an offer of Newell’s.
“Bragarnik has informed me of my dismissal. I’m sorry to leave like this, I’m very proud of what I achieved here“, said Scribe in his last press conference, in which he also criticized the Argentine businessman: “You can buy a club, but not the affection of the people”.
The technician who had assumed his second stage instead of Jorge Almiron started in the 2012-13 season, when he achieved promotion to First with the remembered title of champion after twenty-five 25 years in the category. In addition, the team maintained the first place for the 42 days, pulverizing numerous existing records of the championship.
In his next two seasons in the top flight, the Elche achieved permanence, something that had not been possible in the two previous promotions, in which the Elche it was not able to consolidate. Escribá, hurt by the instability of the club and very worn out by extra-sporting situations, broke his contract after the administrative relegation of the club in which he left an indelible mark, especially among the fans, who idolized his work.
After the last promotion, and with the team in a critical situation, in the relegation zone and with sixteen games in a row without winning, Escribá accepted the challenge of trying to save the Elche team from relegation last season. His simple arrival caused a wave of optimism in the environment from which the campus was infected. He debuted with victory against Eibar and in a few days he achieved the goal.
At that time, he renewed his contract almost immediately due to popular clamor, although from the first moment it was clear that the relationship with Bragarnik was not good. Transfers like those of Darius Benedetto or Javier Pastore, brought directly thanks to the management of the owner of the institution gave the Elche a leap in quality and a requirement to fight for something more than permanence, but the results were not as expected.
Patience of Bragarnik it was definitively ended with the defeat against him Betis, in a match in which the Elche He offered his worst image and in which some of the owner’s stars were pointed out by the coach. Pastore was replaced after the break and BenedettoAfter warming up much of the second period, he did not even enter the field of play. The new era of recovery will possibly be in Argentine hands. Everything will depend on the wishes of Hernán Jorge Crespo or Sebastian Beccacece.
