19 seasons, three of them incomplete, and one of them in the Second Division. Monchi has lived it all as the General Sporting Director of Sevilla FC. Two decades in which the club has lived a revolution, and has always been on an upward turn. Ramón Rodríguez Verdejo has spectacular numbers since he took charge and, last Sunday, the final match of the 2019/20 LaLiga season, he reached 300 wins in the Spanish top flight.
After achieving promotion in his debut season, the side picked up 14 wins in the 2001/02 season, followed by 13 wins, then 15 and 17, before the squad began to win silverware. In the 2005/06 season, the Eindhoven season, the team won 20 league matches, a number they would beat for the next 3 seasons, winning 21 in 2006/07, 20 in 2007/08, and 21 again in 2008/09. The following season, 2009/10, they were victorious in 19 games, before winning 17, 13, 14 and 18 matches respectively, heading into the 2013/14 season.
In all competitions he has 472 wins, and could achieve another 4 this season
In 2014/15 the squad reached their record of 23, and the season after, the Basel year, Monchi's final full season in his first spell at the club, the team won another 14. Before joining Roma in 2017, he had added 17 wins in just 28 matches in 2016/17, and added five more wins in the final nine matches of last season, when he returned to the club. That brought up a total of 281, and the 19 league wins this season, rounded off with a win in the season finale against Valencia CF, have brought up 300 wins in 645 top-flight matches, a 46.5% win ratio.
In all competitions, Monchi is not far off winning 500 matches. He already has 472 by including 64 Copa del Rey wins, 63 in the Europa League, 23 in the Second Division, 18 in the Champions League, 3 in the Spanish Super Cup and 1 in the UEFA Super Cup. He is just 28 matches shy of 500 and he could well start 2020/21 with 476 wins if the team win 4 matches in the Europa League.
