Preciado was unknown out of Spain, but locally the man was loved by all & from all sides of the fence. Beloved as a Football player for Santander, Mallorca, Linares, Ourense Gimnastic ..., will be hugely missed by all the Clubs he Coached & managed to raise from 2º Division into La Liga: Santander, Levante, Murcia & Sporting de Gijon (5 years).
Sincere, transparent, close to the honest man, a hard working ethic, honest, honour, no bullshit attitude & full of human warmth, Manolo Preciado leaves a hole in the country & within the hearts of all Football lovers.
Will be missed, extremely missed. My deepest feelings goes out for his family.
The good always go first...another sad case. RIP.
