With the advent of capital by the Mexican Carlos Slim, one of the richest men in the world and already has several teams in Mexico, Asturians are putting together a staff of very high level for the Second B.
The signing of coach Sergio Egea, an old acquaintance of Spanish men dugouts and veteran Esteban, raised in the house and back last season after being one of the best goalkeepers in the First Division despite his age, joined other former First as Hector Font, Jonathan Vila and Generelo among others, Oviedo will look back at least to Second Division, as an intermediate step before returning to the category of history, should take.
