Good news.....finally the club have officially announced that Iñaki Alonso will continue as manager for the 11-12 and 12-13 seasons. The official website said that:
"The basque coach and the club president Jesús Samper reached an agreement that will unite their destiny until June 2013. The target they both set was reached, and therefore both parts wished for the relationship to consolidate and serve to bring the club closer to the elite of national football.
Iñaki Alonso, as a person and as a professional, has impressed the Murcianist family. He is loved since he arrived last summer, and more so after the spectacular year realized by the players he directs. His work, his words, his desire to take Real Murcia higher has served so the faithful could see in him the perfect guide. The clearest evidence of this is that at no game, home or away, has passed where the fans have not sung his name from the stands.
For the 2011-12 season the Peppermen will be one of the great protagonists in the silver category. We are the kings of the second division, and we arrive back hungry. The project is exiting because of the ambition of all involved. Captain Alonso will maintain at his side his faithful assistant Karlos Barrutia - inseparable since he started managing. Also, two club men will continue beside the basque pair; José Antonio Morga as physical trainer, and Avelino Viña as goalkeeping coach
