All of them were candidates for the Korean command tower… ‘Flores sacking’ Getafe appoints Bordalas as successor

Getafe, who is aiming to remain in La Liga, has appointed a new manager as a firefighter.

Getafe announced on its official website on the 29th (Korean time) that “Director Jose Bordalas has signed a contract with Getafe.”

Getafe토스카지노, who sacked manager Quique Flores on the 27th, appointed manager Bordalas, who has experience leading the club from 2016 to 2021.

Getafe said, “We agreed to leave the baton to coach Bordalas,” and “he led a total of 212 matches from 2016 to 2021, promoting promotion to La Liga and advancing to the UEFA Europa League.” .

Bordalas promoted Getafe from the second division in the 2016/17 season during his tenure, then secured a ticket to the European competition by finishing 5th in the league in the 2018/19 season.

After leaving Getafe, coach Bordalas, who directed Valencia during the 2021/22 season and is currently unemployed, returned to Getafe after about two years when he was called to his home team.

Meanwhile, both Flores, who was sacked at Getafe, and Bordalas, who was appointed as a firefighter, both draw attention because they have ties to Korea.

First of all, coach Flores was once a candidate for the Korean national team coaching tower. After the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the Korea Football Association, which was looking for a successor to coach Shin Tae-yong, aimed for Flores, but failed because they could not reach an agreement on financial issues.

Coach Bordalas is one of the leaders mentioned by foreign media as one of the candidates for coach Paulo Bento, who left the national team after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Last January, local media in Spain reported that “Coach Bordalas received a coaching offer from the Korean national team, but he declined because he wanted a managerial position at a big league club.” Finally, Korea appointed coach Jurgen Klinsmann as the national team’s head coach.

It is also noteworthy that Lee Kang-in (RCD Mallorca) had a big influence on the dismissal of Flores from Getafe while both coaches were candidates for the Korean national team at one time.

On the other hand, director Bordalas was a person who strongly opposed the release of Lee Kang-in during the past Valencia command tower.

On the 24th, Lee Kang-in scored multiple goals in the 30th round of La Liga in the 2022/23 season against Mallorca-Getafe and defeated it 3-1. 

Following the match against Mallorca, Getafe decided to sack coach Flores as their ranking dropped to 17th, just above the relegation zone, after losing 1-2 in the 31st round of the league against UD Almeria.
