Default Former Depor president: Lendoiro

Lendoiro is the main frame in Depors success. He was the one who made deportivo fame, he got players like Tristan, Djalminah, Valeron, Rivaldo, Makaay and Andrade. All this in honor but Lendoiro is a sick man that's for sure!!

He even got Arbeloa

Only Tristan cost us +15M.

Rivaldo was sold 1 year after we got him for a profit of over 15M.

IMO Lendoiro has cocked a few things up lately but I think that particular criticism is unjust as well as factually incorrect.

you can look at other players, andrade was 8M right, sergio, duscher +10 and soo on.
We made too many selling mistakes in the past, a club with our fan base cannot be a buying only club. Depending that you will finish in the top4 and play CL is a dangerous plan, and it backfired on us.

For sure he is 1 big hero in Coruna. He did an amazing job, he brought us many success and I'm really thankfull for that. He made mistakes with transfers, but he always corrected them. But these days he seems more like a greedy old man who doesnt give a damn about the fans.

Of course that isnt true, but I cant accept his style. The way he handles with old players like Fran and Mauro, the financial problems, I have the feeling that in a couple of years Depor wont be our Depor anymore.

I think its time for a new president.

If we're talking about Transfers and Lendoiro, than the presi has got my full backing. The man has been in charge in 1988, and if we can give him credit for one aspect, than it's signing & selling players.

Which president on earth has only signed players who proved to be perfect additions and in the end were sold for more than they were bought? Think about that please before blaming Lendoiro. He's one of the best presidents around on this aspect.

Much of Depor's transfers is covered here: http://www.deportivo-la-coruna.com/t...rsplayers.html

Depor played top football in the early nineties coming from nowhere, and Lendoiro only spent only about 16 million until the summer of 1996. Remember that his includes legends who played for the club like Liaño, Claudio, Mauro Silva, Bebeto, Nando, Donato, Voro, Alfredo, big names like Julio Salinas, Beguiristain and Martín-Vázquez and talented players like Manjarín and Paco.

In all those 19 years:
* He signed star players like Rivaldo, Flávio Conceiçao, Martins, Hélder, Djalminha, Hadji, Ziani, Pauleta, Makaay, Molina, Valerón, Emerson, Tristán, Sergio, Andrade, Luque, Munitis, Coloccini etc. Could any president have convinced them to sign at Depor? Which Spanish team from a small town can copy this?
* He signed young talents like Wiltord, Luizão, Lionel Scaloni, Capdevila, Duscher, Pandiani, De Guzmán, Arizmendi, Barragán, Arbeloa, Adrián etc.
* He signed legends cheaply like Songo'o, Naybet, Romero, Manuel Pablo, 'Turu' Flores, Víctor etc.. These players were extremely important around the century change.
* The Championship winning team of 1999/2000 (Songo'o - Romero, Naybet, Donato, Manuel Pablo - 'Turu' Flores, Mauro Silva, Flávio Conceiçao, Víctor Sánchez, Djalminha - Makaay) only 'cost' Depor about 44 million Euro for 11 players, we had them for many years and 10 of them (Manuel Pablo is still at the club) were sold for about 46 million Euro. Think about it.

Of course there have been mistakes too. But again, it's theoretical impossible to only have 100% deals in 19 years. Salinas, Martín-Vázquez and Beguirisitain didn't really bring what was expected. Kouba and Radchenko had a big name when signing. Renaldo, Luizão, Manteca and Abreu failed as strikers. Djorovic was a big mistake. And of course, there's 'Toro' Acuña. Lendoiro's biggest mistake.

But can we really blame Lendoiro for the others? It's a high risk when signing older players, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Strikers have come and go, but many of them have triumphed. Manteca and Abreu were panic signings during the 97/98 season. Djorovic was injured a lot. Then remains the mystery of why Lendoiro paid 11 million Euro for 30-year old 'Toro' Acuña in 2002 from relegated Zaragoza.

Between 1991-2006 the signings cost Depor around 250 million Euro and players were sold for about 150 million Euro. So, we spent about 100 million Euro for 15 years of great football (on average thats 6,7 million Euro per season). The value of players like Coloccini, Jorge Andrade (a combined 15-20 millon Euro) should still be deduced from that 100 million Euro.

Thanks Lendoiro for the illusion you gave us!

Today is the 19th anniversary of Lendoiro and his team taking over at Depor.

On the 13th of June 1988, Augusto César Lendoiro and his team, Luis Sánchez Doporto, Felipe Marcos Hidalgo, Francisco Dopico Porto, Manuel Montiel Duque, Roberto Veira, Jesús Rebollo Capillas and Pepe Guillín, took over Depor officially. They all came from amateur football. Lendoiro started Ural when he was 15 ; Luisín was with Gaiteira; Pachi Dopico with Deportivo Ciudad; Lolo Montiel with Orzán; Suso Rebollo with Victoria; Pepe Guillín & Roberto Veira, with Español of Santa Lucía.

Depor had just miraculously avoided relegation to Segunda División B, and possible extinction , only surviving by a goal from Vicente Celeiro v Racing de Santander at the Riazor.
From that moment it was the start of Depor's most illustrious period in 100 years of history.

But like everything in this life, there are lights and shadows, and what has a beginning must have an end...

It's obvious that Lendoiro did great things for Depor, and help us to get our dreams, to win 1 Liga, 2 Copas, 3 Supercopas, and to play several years in CL. But it's obvious too IMO that his management these last years has become worst and worst...

Nice post there Leon, but I have to admit that I agree with Blue Nation.

Yes, Lendoiro did alot of great things in the past. Great signings of unknown players and all of these things. He did amazing at that time but that has seemed to reach an end.
You could compare it to Tristian. He was amazing for some years he even played on the national team, but later he started performing bad, not just bad, very bad. And what happened? We got rid of him!

I don't see Lendoiro staying here much longer. It's not like I don't like him or anything, we just have to think about the present and the future and not about the past.

Lendoiro called Fran as a robber, he wants a new stadium when being almost bankrupted, did not give any particular info of book-keeping to the shareholders in the meeting, has not a single ex-player-hero in his management, has all his family in his management, has political battles with the mayors of the city...

Our lawyer and second man behind Lendoiro, Germán Rodríguez Conchado, has resigned!

This seems to be a civil war, he was the one that closed the doors in the past shareholders meeting, and he also made polemic declarations in a local paper. The response of depor? well Depor Sport wrote yesterday that he was a 'gorila'. The reaction of Conchado is that he has resigned.

Great, what we need, more problems
