Contents

Playing career

García Toral (simply Marcelino in his playing days), was irregularly used in his first four professional seasons, at Sporting de Gijón - he did appear a record 33 times in 1986–87, as the Asturians finished a best-ever fourth. His first division debut was on December 22, 1985, in a 1–1 draw at Celta de Vigo.

He hung up his boots in 1991 and only 26, after two Segunda División spells, with Racing de Santander and Levante UD, both ended in relegation.

Manager career

García Toral started coaching at 33, with lowly CD Lealtad, also in Asturias. For the next five years, he coached in the immediately above level, with Sporting's reserves.

From 2003–05, he was in charge of the first team, finishing 5th and 10th, then signed with Recreativo de Huelva, which he led to promotion in his first season, and a comfortable mid-table position in the top level in the following, which made him the recipient of his first Miguel Muñoz Trophy.

García Toral resigned at the end of the season and took over at former club Santander, leading the Cantabrians to a best-ever 6th-place finish, with the subsequent UEFA Cup qualification. However, on May 29, 2008, he again moved teams, returning to level two and joining Real Zaragoza, with the objective of a promotion, which was finally achieved;[1] in the process of signing, he had rejected Valencia CF, and became the country's best paid manager at 2.4 million per year, following the departure of Real Madrid's Bernd Schuster.[2]

On December 13, 2009, following a string of poor results (the last a 1–2 home defeat to Athletic Bilbao), García Toral was fired by Zaragoza, with the Aragonese nonetheless still above the relegation zone.[3]
