Villarreal CF has now defined the coaching staff of the main academy teams for the 2023/24 season.

The Santander-born manager has spent five seasons as coach at the club, where he has taken charge of the Alevín A (U12), Cadete A (U16) and Juvenil B (U18) teams.

Meanwhile, David Cifuentes, who coached the U19s team last season, becomes assistant head coach of Villarreal B, joining Miguel Álvarez in what will be his seventh season at the helm of the Mini Submarine.
