The newspaper Marca, in its Sunday section ‘Primera Plana’, focuses on the figure of a 35-year-old young Canarian coach that everyone has talked about in Latin America in recent months for winning the ‘Copa Sudamericana’ and beating Flamengo 5-0 , champion of the Libertadores.
This is how Alberto Romero Barbero’s report begins, entitled: Coach without trying. «The economy of words of the title that heads a report like this makes it necessary to clarify that what Miguel Ángel Ramírez had never intended is to become a coach of what can be considered as elite football.“My vocation is as a trainer and I was comfortable there, but everything has happened …”, he confesses to Primera Plana. «I do not share being in grassroots football wanting to be somewhere else. For me it is a mistake and I do not see a teacher of Early Childhood or Primary Education wishing to be a University teacher, ” he adds.
