Club Deportivo Torrevieja has reached an agreement with Joaquín López Martínez (Montpellier, 1971) better known as Kiko López, to become the new coach of the first team. López has strong ties with the neighbouring municipality of Los Montesinos as well as with our city, and he comes highly recommended by the Club’s sports director Juanjo Fernández.
As a UEFA PRO football coach, Kiko López posesses the highest coaching qualification obtainable from the footballing sphere, above that of the Licencia UEFA A and Licencia UEFA B titles. Kiko López has an outstanding professional career, working with Real Madrid CF for 10 years and training top teams in countries such as China, Tunisia, Kuwait and the Under-17 and Under-19 teams for Bahrain.
Working alongside Kiko, the Club has appointed Francisco José Guillén Llamusi (Elche, 1976) “Paco Guillén”, who will work as assistant coach. His most recent success was ensuring the promotion of CD Almoradí into the 3º División in the 2015-2016 season.
CD Torrevieja welcomes both coaches to the Club and wishes them the greatest success in their work.
