Coaching career: Levante UD (youth team), El Puig CF, Villarreal CF

• Initially a football reporter for his local newspaper, Valencia-born Garrido decided on a change of career in his early 20s, moving into coaching youth football teams.

• Learned his craft coaching in the youth ranks at Levante before taking sole command at El Puig, guiding them to two promotions and eventually finishing runners-up in the Valencia region's top local league during his six years in charge.

• Hired by Villarreal president Fernando Roig in 1999 to take charge of the academy; over the following nine years he also led Villarreal Onda, the club's youth side, taking them into the Spanish third division.

• Took over from Juan Carlos Oliva as coach of Villarreal B's team in 2008, guiding them from the third tier to the top rungs of the second.

• His reputation established, Garrido was handed a chance at coaching the first team in February 2010 following the departure of Ernesto Valverde, and he jusified his subsequent three-year contract extension by securing a fourth-place Liga finish in 2010/11; Villarreal came through qualifying at the start of the following campaign to reach the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time since 2008/09.
