The current coach of UD Las Palmas, Pepe Mel, is one of the most experienced managers in the Spanish football. His long career began after his retirement as a player in 98 and since then he has not stopped leading one team after another.

The current manager of Las Palmas maintains a friendship with the two managers of Marbella Football Center and Football Impact. Indeed he has visited MFC with UD Las Palmas and tb has traveled to Germany hand in hand with Football Impact with Betis.
A year ago, Mel also visited the Marbella Football Center facilities, but for another purpose. He was one of the speakers at the 1st International Football Coaches Meeting along with Adolfo Aldana (former Real Madrid player) and Erling Moe, current manager of Molde FK.
