Finally the worst omens were confirmed and Real Betis fired Pepe Mel. He did it forgetting that it was the Madrid coach who took the team in the Second Division in the year 2010 and led him to the First Division brilliantly, also starring in a spectacular Cup tie against Barcelona. He did it also ignoring that Mel was the man who took the group to Europe, where happily he is still alive after having passed the group stage.
He did it also leaving behind that it was Pepe Mal more than any other until now who took care of the quarry like no other, the one that got to get up to more than a dozen homegrown players who hardly knew each other to turn them into figures or at least into footballers with names, say Ezequiel, Beñat Etxebarria, Sergio Rodriguez, Alex Martinez, the now defunct Miki Roqué, Manu Palancar, José Alberto Cañas Ruiz-Herrera, Razak Brimah |, Fran No, Alvaro Vadillo, Alejandro Pozuelo, Ninth, Adrián San Miguel del Castillo or Eder Vilarchao.
Did, especially, mistreating history, the one that Mel has written and that has led Betis to play the best football in their history with modest players away from the huge multi-million dollar contracts that Denilson had once, Finidi, Jarni or Alfonso and many other men under the checkbook of Don Manuel Ruíz de Lopera.
It is true that the classification in the League is bad with 10 points 15 journeys, but there was no reason for this. The fans were to death with the coach (as has been demonstrated with your support upon hearing the dismissal) that I still had enough credit, the players wanted him to rage and the situation being bad was reversible since just three victories put them in the bid for Europe.
Miguel Guillen this time is completely wrong. If there was a man who could save Real Betis it was Pepe Mel. Hobby, players, journalists and even rivals believed in him. It will, instead among another great coach Garrido, a man who shares a certain similarity with Mel, Well, they shot when their team was second in the Belgian league and for no apparent reason. It has a way to go and capacity too, but any stumble will mean a rebellion in the club, rebellion from which Mel's executioner can go wrong: Miguel Guillen. Is said.
