Who are the best coaches in the history of Valencia CF? The Valencia club is one of the great historically as the historical classification and ranking of the Spanish League. So today in Colgados, we remember those who are for us the five best technicians who have passed through Mestalla club history.

The best coaches in the history of Valencia

Rafa Benitez: the doublet man, the man of the two leagues. When he arrived back in Valencia 2001 few expected it would become which is arguably the best coach in club history. Partly because when he joined the club valencianista his resume was more than discreet and counted only on a descent and a few resignations.

Against all odds won the league in his first year and that he had foot and a half outside the club at Christmas of that year. Not only got the machada in 2002 but two years later he was going to surpass it by being the coach of the double, winning the League 2004 UEFA and the same year. Rafa Benitez's Valencia He is possibly the best in the history of the club.

Alfredo Di Stefano: madridista myth is primarily a coach with more games in the history of Valencia. Don Alfredo, He was forever linked to Valencia and much of his family settled in the city after the first of three stages.

He went to Valencia in the first stage between 1970 y 1974, the second in 1979-80 and a final step between 1986 y 1988. As coach of Valencia, he won the League of 1971, Cup Winners' Cup 1980 and was the coach who returned to Valencia to 1st at the worst time of club. Certainly a myth and history of Valencia and with complete worthiness, one of the best coaches in the club's history.

Passion guitar: As a player He spent most of his career between Valencia and Levante where he played at various stages in both clubs. As a coach, He directed in several different stages to Valencia club where he managed to win several titles. Under the direction of Pasieguito, Valencia won the Copa del Rey 1979 and Supercopa of Europe 1980. Almost always linked to the coaching staff at Valencia, Pasieguito is on merit another one of those engraved in gold in the history of Valencia names.

Claudio Ranieri: the Roman general turned in several stages to Valencia. When he arrived at the first, the club was sailing aimlessly almost half of the league table and as many decades that did not celebrate anything. As in the case of Benitez, He had foot and a half outside but righted the course of the ship and managed to win the first title after many years, the King's Cup 1999.

His second stage was not the same but still managed to win the European Super Cup 2004. It was the first stone of the resurgence of Valencia in the new century. Also under his leadership Valencia won the insipid and little recognized Intertoto 1998. Directed by him and the Piojo Lopez on the grass, Valencia was a real hammer for the Barcelona Van Gaal. Years later he achieved one of the great hits in the history of football winning the Premier with Leicester.

Hector Cuper: Argentina achieved what no one has managed so far, Valencia put the two end of Champions, only two of its history and consecutively. He lost both, in fact Cuper has lost almost all finals he has played on all computers, but the milestone left the flag up high.

The mash was great. He won the Supercopa of Spain 1999 but left feeling that was one of the best coaches who have gone through the Valencia bench. Valencia left to make way for Rafa Benitez also putting their bit at the Valencia of the first five years of this century.

Marcelino García Toral: The Asturian coach earned a place in the hearts of the Valencian fans. When Marcelino arrived at Valencia, The Mestalla team was a destroyed team that had come close to relegation and had very bad experiences with technicians like Gary Neville and Paco Ayestarán. With his arrival everything changed. He won the Copa del Rey 2019 and he twice qualified for the Champions League against Valencia before Peter Lim and Anil Murthy kicked him out of the club for issues that had nothing to do with sports..
