Joined Dynamo: 01 February 2014

He started his career in Gimnástica de Torrelavega as physical trainer and assistant coach working alongside now-deceased Manuel Manolo Preciado. That was a very famous coach Riancho cooperated with for 12 years. After that he worked for Racing de Santander, Levante UD, and FC Rubin Kazan.

Manolo passed away a year and a half ago. It was a great loss for Raul: “Manolo was the best friend of mine. We cooperated for twelve years and achieved some results. Our teams promoted from Tercera to Segunda B and then to Primera”.

Riancho is sure that every team has its game model and one should look for players for it. “Both Oleh Blokhin and Serhiy Rebrov accepted the game model based on ball control eagerly. Of course it’s difficult for performers to get used to it, but they do their best. There are a lot of good players in Ukraine, but they face problems when not in possession. We work on that every day”.

Raul mentions that Dynamo are making headway. “I already see progress in our performers’ thinking on the pitch”.

Creative working process of Rebrov – Riancho duo is what gives FC Dynamo Kyiv players motivation.

- They all gladden me as they understand what I explain them, - states Spanish specialist. – They are very active and willing to learn something new. We often analyze their play and mistakes they make, but also pay attention to positive aspects. We just need some patience to let performers adapt to this model of work. That will give positive result.
