Sergio Pellicer García (09/09/1973, Nules – Castellón) is a coach who trained, amongst other clubs, in the MCF Academy. His time within the youth ranks was stellar, winning the second Spanish Copa de Campeones in the Club’s history with the Juvenil DH. This achievement allowed the homegrown team to play in the UEFA Youth League for the first time.

Following a spell as assistant coach and, later, as head coach of Atlético Malagueño (reserve team), Pellicer took charge of the Blue and White first team on 12/01/20 on an interim basis, approximately three years ago. During the season and a half at the helm of MCF, he kept the team in LaLiga SmartBank on two complex occasions.

A specialist in difficulties, he had to manage the halt in activity due to COVID-19 and, in 20/21, a sporting ERE (collective dismissal) and a suffocating penalty of 18 professional players as a limit. Despite this historically complicated context, he achieved his objectives with some ease.

Pellicer once again assumes the role with the firm objective of getting the team out of the relegation zone.

Lots of luck, míster!
