Elche F.C. was represented at the recent accolade paid by the football world to the legendary Alfredo di Stefano, who managed the club during the 1967-1968 season. Elche was in the Primera division at the time and it was Di Stefano’s first managerial appointment after hanging up his playing boots. He kept the club in the top flight that season, before moving on to manage Valencia and Real Madrid.

Di Stefano, together with strike partner Ferenc Puskas, was a vital part of the Real Madrid side, widely regarded as one of the greatest ever, which dominated European football in the 1950‘s, when it won the European Championships in 5 consecutive seasons.

The club also dominated the Spanish league, winning it 8 times between 1954 and 1964. Nicknamed ‘The Blond Arrow’, he was best known as a forward but in fact could play in any position on the pitch to great effect. He set all sorts of goal scoring records, with a career total of 1123 goals in 896 appearances and was named European footballer of the year twice. His name always features high in any list of all time football greats and in 2003 was named by the Royal Spanish Football Federation as their’ Golden Player’, the outstanding player of the previous 50 years.
