CD MONTESIONS coach Carlos Perez and his assistant Angel Ivan, although celebrating the club’s promotion to the 1st Regional division of the Valencia football league have their feet firmly on the ground regarding their prospects in the new league.
“Next season will be one of settling in to the 1st Regional league,” said Perez, speaking at the annual Player of the Year awards.
The Los Montesinos based club manager said: “I am looking at finishing mid table in the 2017-18 season. Any higher will be a bonus.”
Former CF Torrevieja player Carlos, who replaced sacked Camacho in October, led CD Montesinos to the Championship title of the 2nd Regional Group this season.
“I will be looking to strengthen the squad with an additional four players during the summer,” he confirmed.
Perez, who also played at Valencia CF reserve team Mestalla, said: “The 1st Regional league will be much more difficult to play in next season, there are many big clubs we will face.”
Despite a number of rumours suggesting he may be poached by interested clubs following his success, the coach was happy to commit his future to the promoted club: “I will be at CD Montesinos next season. I am looking forward to the challenge,” explained Perez
He began his career in management at Bigastro, Guardamar and Torrevieja when his playing career came to an end
“After the first season in the 1st Regional we can then look ahead and maybe push forward into another promotion thereafter. But it won’t be easy.” Said the delighted Perez.
