Malaga head coach Sergio Pellicer, who this month celebrates a year in the post, is incredibly the third longest serving coach in Segunda. Pellicer is behind only Las Palmas' Pepe Mel (21 months) and Ponferradina's Jon Pérez Bolo (18 months). ... Since the departure of Javi Gracia in May 2016, no coach has offered the same level of stability as Pellicer. Not even Míchel (31 games) nor Víctor Sánchez del Amo (29) reached the 41 matches overseen so far by Pellicer.
