CD Jávea have revealed that former CD Dénia head coach Diego Miñana will be charged with guiding the first team to promotion to the Third Division next season. The rojiblancos charge for a play-off spot this season was halted by the COVID-19 health crisis and the club finished in fifth spot, four points off the top three, after the FFCV declared the 2019/20 season as finished earlier this month. With eight games remaining, the club might have accomplished its main objective but the board clearly wants to put the club into a strong position to begin the campaign as one of the favourites for a top three spot by naming Miñana as the man to lead such ambitions.

A native of Oliva, Miñana knows Group III very well having held posts at CD Dénia, UD Oliva, UE Tavernes, Pego CF and UE Gandía.  He led the Dianese side to the Group III title in 2018/19 but couldn't take the club the final step through the play-offs to win promotion to the national level. However he left the club in the summer of 2019 after the board failed to meet his ambitions for it.  In 2019 he was selected as the best coach of Group III, attracting the recognition alongside CD Jávea goalkeeper Edu Samblás and midfielder Javi Hernández, who was playing for CD Dénia at the time but returned to his home club last season.

Miñana was rumoured to be joining CD Jávea after the departure of head coach Juan Carlos Signes in December 2019 but the job went to Roberto Granero. His advantage is that he is well-known and respected in regional football, particularly in the La Safor and Marina Alta districts, and in fact CD Jávea was the only major side in the region with which he had not been connected. That vacancy has now been filled

A PE teacher by profession, Miñana once said: "If we are going to fight for something, the first thing we have to do is for the footballer to believe in that something. We know it is difficult, but if we work well, we are going to demonstrate to ourselves that we really are capable.” The big advantage he holds is that he knows many of the squad already, having worked with them at CD Dénia.

Miñana was presented by Juan Boluda, the former co-ordinator of Soccer 11 who has now joined the first team and reserve side management squad and has been charged with preparing a strong squad to meet the club's ambitions for the future.
