HOW IS ORIOL ALSINA?

Coach and Sports Director – Llagostera 

It is not a coincidence that Oriol Alsina is considered a miracle in the world of soccer. The coach, from Arenys de Mar, managed to promote a humble team from a town of less than 8,000 people to the Second Division of the best league worldwide.

After a first stage in which he already achieved the promotion from the Third to the Second Regional Division with U.E. Llagostera, Oriol Alsina went through two other clubs of the region. In one of them, U.D. Cassà, also achieved a meritorious promotion to the Second Regional Division.

At that time, the President of U.E. Llagostera, Josep Valentí, knew that the only person who could make the club improve was Oriol.

The team was playing in the Second Regional Division and the main objective was not to descend, but that didn’t convince him, and he decided to try to promote the team again. And he did so. After the playoff, the club climbed up to the First Regional Division.

The reality of U.E Llagostera: The club had reached the peak of its history at that time, since such a category had never been achieved before. But the best was yet to come!

Year after year the team was favorite to loose the category, and year after year the team overcame itself. And the First Regional Division wasn’t going to be less. After an incredible season, leaders and promotion. A milestone. An ascent never before imagined in Llagostera. The team was going to play in the Preferential Regional Division for the first time in history!

Here, he needed two seasons to achieve it. A meritorious 7th place in the first season gave hope to the fans. Is the team able to promote next year?

And so it was. After finishing in second place, the team won 5-0 against Martorell in the playoff and promoted to the Catalan First Division. An unimaginable scene of what all the Catalan football started to talk about.

Media also started to talk about U.E. Llagostera. How is it possible? Which is the secret? Even do, the truth is that at the beginning of the season no one thought that the team was going to maintain the category. They have already gone very far, it’s a humble team, the one with a smallest budget…

Nothing was further from reality. A new promotion made even greater the legend of Oriol Alsina. The club ascended to the Third National Division of the Spanish soccer.

“We are going to promote again”, said Oriol to family and friends in a joking tone. Once again, it was unimaginable to believe that the he could promote the team again. After one year of adaptation, the following season Llagostera won the championship played the playoff against CCD Cerceda Gallego with a total aggregate of 3-0, and incredibly promoted to Second Division B!

The Legend of Llagostera continued growing. A town team, without an own stadium, with a low budget, in Second Division B, incredible!

The European media started to talk about the amazing soccer story of a small town near the city of Girona.

Stories that look like science fiction. Stories that talk about a season to enjoy. On more time, no one had positive hopes around the team staying in 2-B.

Oriol Alsina was one point away of qualifying for playoff in its first year. Never again no one doubted of him anymore. Two years later, in a SPECTACULAR season the team achieved a miracle after defeating C.F. Avilés and Gimnàstic de Tarragona and promoted to the Second Division Professional Football League!

How did he do in Second Division?

Better watch it yourself!

Sports Director – Girona

When Oriol Alsina became coach of Girona, the team was having a tough season in Second Division and almost lost the category. If Girona didn’t stay in Second Division the club could have disappeared. Alsina restructure the team in two weeks and after having two different coaches, he trusted in Pablo Machín, a coach from Soria that no one had seen before.

Today, that unknown coach is the key for a Girona that is trying to qualify to play in Europe. Pablo Machín is now desired coach by a bunch of teams of the old continent.

Oriol has received some critics during his stage at Girona, as he has never wanted have a team full of stars and has bet for the young and home made players. Àlex Granell who descended with his team to Third Division, or Alfredo Ortuño who last year played in Second Division B, are some examples. Today, Granell is the captain of Giron in First Division and Ortuño one of the stars of the American Major Soccer League (MLS).

Oriol Alsina, left Girona in the First Division after saving the category at the very end of the championship and gave the club the foundations of a team that know is competitive in the Spanish Football elite.
