Gustavo Munúa is the new coach of Fabril. The former keeper has a short career as a football coach and is replacing Rubén Coméndez, who is returning to Juvenil A.

Former Depor’s goalkeeper Gustavo Munúa is the new coach of Fabril. The Uruguayan arrived on Tuesday to A Coruña and today will be directing his first training session. He signs a contract lasting until the end of the season. His assistant will be Christian Berman.

The Uruguayan is repacking Rubén Coméndez, who directed three games with Fabril adding three draws. According to La Voz de Galicia the players have requested for the continuity of Coméndez, but the club decided to hire a new coach for the B squad as they preferred Coméndez to stay with Juvenil A after the latter lost two of the last three games and now lies five points behind leaders Sporting Gijón.

Munúa has a two-year experience as a coach. In 2015, he was signed by Nacional de Montevideo and, after a doubtful start, his team improved a lot and reached the quarterfinals on Copa Libertadores and ended eliminated by Boca Juniors.

Early this year he was signed by Liga de Quito in Ecuador and that was a bad experience as his team only won once after ten matchdays and was sacked after ending in the relegation zone. He has been described as a coach that always like to practice an open and offensive football, something that sounds attractive, but that also have a negative aspect as it was the reason why he left Liga de Quito.

As a player, Munúa had a career of 151 la liga games, but only 27 of them were wearing the shirt of Deportivo. He spent six years in A Coruña and normally was the substitute keeper at the squad. His main season was the 2004/05 after disputing 17 Primera games, this since Jose Francisco Molina had to temporally leave the game due to cancer.
