CD Tenerife lives its seventh consecutive season in the Second Division since it returned to the silver category in the 13/14 season. During this period, up to nine technicians have been on the bench for Rodríguez López. The first on this list is Álvaro Cervera, who got the promotion in the 12/13 campaign. The Guinean coach led the island team in the Second Division the first season after the return and 23 days of the following year. In total he added 65 clashes to the front of the representative from Tenerife in which he had 21 victories, 15 tied and 29 defeats.If you have to highlight your own name among the last coaches, that is Josep Lluís Martí. The Balearic strategist arrived on the island in November 2015 to replace Raúl Agné. At that time Martí took a team in decline and was in a delicate situation. However, in his first experience at the head of a bench, the Mallorcan was able to redirect the situation and finish in 13th position. After the cold water jug due to frustrated ascent, the island team had to rearm its staff. Soccer players who had given a great performance like Amath, ´Choco´ Lozano or Gaku Shibasaki finished their contracts. Despite this, the entity was reinforced with renowned players such as Longo, Juan Villar or Malbasic to return to fight for the top of the table. The high expectations were not met and Martí was dismissed midway through the championship. The Balearic coach is, with 98 matches, the second coach who has led Tenerife the most times in the Smartbank league, only behind José Luis Oltra.Since the Majorcan’s departure, the Rodríguez López bench has been characterized by constant instability. Joseba Exteberria was in charge of supplying Martí. The Basque made a good end of the campaign and the island team was close to entering the Playoff. Last year the insulars suffered until the end to achieve permanence. Exteberría’s stay on the island was quite ephemeral, because after five clashes without adding a victory he was terminated. Later they went through the blue and white club with more pain than Gloria Oltra, in its second stage and Luis Cesar Sampedro.In the current season, López Garai, Sesé Rivero, as interim, and now Rubén Baraja complete the list of technicians. After 31 days played in the SmartBank League, the Blue and Whites occupy the twelfth place with 39 points in their locker. The islanders chain a total of ten wins, twelve losses and nine draws.On the offensive level, the team led by Baraja has 36 goals. As of today, the maximum producer is Dani Gómez, who has six goals. The striker on loan from Real Madrid had a difficult start, but has established himself as indisputable since the arrival of the coach from Valladolid.On the other hand, on the defensive side the Blue and Whites have conceded the same goals they have scored. Although in the last clashes the islanders have found the defensive solidity that has allowed them to move away from the bottom of the table. In fact, Adrián Ortolá has kept his goal to zero in three of the last four games played. With these numbers we will have to wait until the end of the season to find out if the Pucelano coach’s project has continuity. The 2016-2017 season is without a doubt the best of the last period in the silver division. In that course those of Martí returned to excite the fans and managed to enter the playoff, finishing fourth in the league. However, they could not certify the long-awaited promotion to the First Division after falling defeated in the final tie against Getafe (3-2).
