TITO RAMALLO LEAVES DEPORTIVO B

17 May 2012
The failure on the season that has just ended moved coach Tito Ramallo to step aside after eleven years at Fabril; Deportivo hasn’t announced yet the name of his replacement and neither if Ramallo will still attacked to the club.

On Tuesday the club announced that Rogelio ´Tito’ Ramallo Peña’ is leaving Deportivo B after been the head coach for eleven years. He has been involved with the youth teams for the past eighteen years. Tito arrived to Deportivo in 1994 and was the physical trainer of the first team, one year later he was named the second coach of Deportivo B and stayed in the job for four years.

Then Ramallo was the head coach of Deportivo Juvenil A and stayed there for the seasons 1999/00 and 2000/01; then he jumped to Deportivo B for the campaign 2001/02. The career of Tito at Fabril lasted eleven seasons, mark only matched by legendary coaches like Arsenio Iglesias.

The true is that the stage of Ramallo at Fabril had ups and downs; he was able to clinch two promotions to Segunda División B and even played the promotion playoff to Segunda A in 2008, but in the end his team was relegated twice to Tercera División after a short stage at Segunda B. It was rumoured that he wanted to leave during the past summer, but decided to stay in order to attempt a third promotion, but failed and Fabril won’t even take part of the playoffs.

However, the club didn’t clarify if Ramallo is leaving the club or only the B squad of Deportivo, because he could stay as part of the staff; actually in 2008 Tito was named as the coordinator for the youth teams at Depor, job that he left after a few months in order to be fully focused in the role of Fabril’s coach. Neither has been announced the name of the new trained for Deportivo B.

Ramallo talked to reporters on Wednesday and explained why he’s leaving, ”You need to know where to leave; it was the right time to do it. Even if we would have achieved the promotion the decision would have been the same.” He neither clarified his future, For now we must enjoy the promotion of Depor, then we will see what I will do.”.
