Getafe CF is starting to shine. While midweek it achieved a 2-0 victory over RC Celta de Vigo, its second victory at home, this time its victim was RCD Espanyol, who succumbed 0-2 after the goals from Adrián Colunga.

But in addition to the result, attention was focused on the visitors' bench and Luis García Plaza, who was at the helm for his 83rd match with the Madrid team, becoming the man with the most matches in the team's history in the Liga BBVA, leaving Míchel in his wake, who accumulated 80 during his time at the Alfonso Pérez.

The victory against the Catalonian team was the 28th with Getafe for the Madrid native, who now has Míchel's 31 victories as manager of the team in his sights. If circumstances allow it, Luis García will reach one hundred matches with Ángel Torres' team, a number which is far superior to that of other coaches such as Bernd Schuster (76), Quique Sánchez Flores (38), Michael Laudrup (38) and Víctor Muñoz (33).

This season Getafe has played seven matches, winning three, drawing one and losing the remaining three, which puts it in eighth place in the table with ten points.

As a player, Luis García learnt his trade at the youth academies of Club Atlético de Madrid and Rayo Vallecano de Madrid. He also played in the shirt of Benidorm CD, before retiring at the age of 28 after several injuries.
