As reported by the newspaper AS, Elche is handling the possibility that Jorge Almirón returns to the first team bench after several coaches rejected the possibility of taking office.

Names like Xabi Alonso, Albert Celades and Pablo Machín fell in recent days, so Christian Bragarnik is seriously considering betting on the well-known coach and reinstating the Argentine, who had a good start to the season last season, but was dismissed for the poor results later.

Elche is in 18th position in the table in La Liga with 11 points from 14 games, just one point below the position that closes the classification zone. The problem is that it has been dragging a negative dynamic in the last matches: It links 6 games without winning (draws against Espanyol and Mallorca plus the losses against Rayo Vallecano, Deportivo Alavés, Real Madrid and Real Betis Balompié) and has not achieved a victory since the 3rd October against Celta de Vigo. Everything cost Fran Escribá his job.

Jorge Almirón ended his stage in Elche (August 26 to February 12) with 24 matches directed with 5 wins, 9 losses and 10 losses. The team was in the relegation zone, but Fran Escribá ended up saving it in the final days.
