Germán reunites with Córdoba CF in the First Federation


The duel between Córdoba and Recreativo Granada will have an emotional component on the benches. The ex-white-green German He reunites with Córdoba after leaving the team. With the Nasrid subsidiary, who was the Cordoba coach, he reunites with the fans who accompanied him during a great season with the team in Second Federation and the first half of a first round of enrollment in First Federation. Unfortunately, he did not have the best ending to close his time as a green and white coach that will be remembered on Sunday in Los Cármenes.

Córdoba dismissed Germán Crespo as first team coach in April 2023, after the defeat against Linares Deportivo. The team’s poor dynamics since last December squandered the points cushion it had in the first round and the board decided to dismiss the Granada coach. A year has passed since that did not work because the team did not manage to enter the promotion play off. Today, the situation has changed significantly with Iván Ania’s Córdoba in second position, already hunting for the intractable leader, Castellón.

Front by side will be Germán Crespo and his successor on the Córdoba bench, Iván Ania. With the permission of Manuel Mosquera who took charge of the team in the final days of last season. The Granada coach, with his team mathematically relegated, wants to demonstrate his ability against Córdoba and is also on a great streak. El Recreativo Granada chain two victories in Group 2 of the First Federation. They won 5-0 against San Fernando and 0-1 against Alcoyano. He is bottom, but he will not stop competing against a Córdoba team that is fighting to be second mathematically.

His legacy

Germán Crespo rescued the team in the Second Federation and managed to remove it from the category with a historic season that culminated with a promotion and the achievement of the RFEF . Last season, in the First Federation, the team was like an arrow, being the leader until the last match of the first round. However, in the second round he showed his worst image and chained negative results that made him little by little leave the play off zone.


The coaching staff, led by Germán Crespo, renewed until 2026, but the club has decided to break the relationship given the results. The man from Granada had the support and confidence of the board until the last moment with Javier González Calvo in charge, who decided to end his work and start a new stage. The change in Córdoba would not only come on the bench because a month later the ownership decided to dismiss González Calvo to place Antonio Fernández Monterrubiowho currently holds the position of CEO of Córdoba.

Germán Crespo has coached Córdoba for three seasons since taking over the team at the end of the 2020-2021 season. Yesand sat on the bench 75 times (3 in the defunct Second Division B, 34 Second Federation, 31 in First Federation, 5 in Copa RFEF and 2 in Copa del Rey), also taking into account the duel against Racing de Ferrol that was postponed after ten minutes.

His numbers show a percentage of almost 60% of matches won in his career as a green and white. An average of 2 points per game makes him one of the most performing coaches in the history of the Córdoba club that is beginning a new stage. Now, he meets the team that made the jump to the First Federation. Crespo decided to wait for a desirable project in the bronze category until The Recreativo Granada option appeared. He tried to keep the team in the category, but ultimately he did not achieve permanence and the team was relegated two weeks ago to the Second Federation.
