Pedro Morata, journalist for Marca and COPE, says on Directo Gol that Marcelino García Toral has already declined several offers to return to manage.
Brighton, Nottingham Forest and Wolves came calling, but he said no to all three Premier League clubs. He also turned down offers to coach Sevilla and Elche in La Liga.
Morata says the Asturian head coach is waiting for Luis Enrique’s possible departure as national team coach. There is a preference for the coach of La Roja to be a Spaniard and Marcelino, without a doubt, would be one of the candidates.
Several reports in Spain have hinted at the possibility of a Luis Enrique departure after the World Cup in Qatar.
