He is the current manager of Athletic Bilbao. A former midfielder represented Sporting Gijon, Racing Santander, Levante, and Elche as well as Spain at U18, U19, U20, and U21 levels.
Survived an accident along with her family
Mar Garcia, along with her family, traveled from Valencia to Asturias for a Christmas celebration back in 2017 when they met with an accident.
On their way, their car ran over a 90 kilo wild boar leaving the car to overturn. She, along with her then 81-year-old mother-in-law, was seriously injured.
Her ribs were cracked while her mother-in-law suffered several traumas and was rushed to a nearby hospital. On the other hand, Marcelino had to wear a neck brace.
Mother of one
Her beautiful marriage to Marcelino gave birth to their only son Sergio Garcia. Sergio, now 29 years old, is working under his father as an assistant fitness coach.
Sergio is often seen with his mom spending quality time and showering love which he expresses with sweet words dedicating her in his social media account.
She is always supportive of her spouse’s decision
According to Marcelino, his family is always aware that the decision is his when it comes to taking professional decisions.
He always makes the decisions, and his family has been respective and supportive since the first day.
When Marcelino chose football over studies, his parents were initially not convinced, which led to controversy. Still, soon they realized his passion and accepted, and later after he married Mar Garcia same thing happened.
A ruthless sacking of her husband despite the positive outcome
Her husband Marcelino was hired by Valencia in May 2017. In his two seasons at the club, he led the club to finish back-to-back to fourth place in La Liga.
Furthermore, he also led the team to lift the Copa del Rey cup beating Barcelona to 2-1. Despite the positive results, he still got sacked from his post, something that was not fair and was shocking.
Many of the ex-players came out in support of him, criticizing the one who sacked him. According to Marcelino, the reason they gave behind sacking him was that he was challenging the owner, which he never did.
He confessed to being hurt by their decision, but at the same time, he knew that life has to go on as time heals all wounds. He also stated he would not be greeting Valencia president Anil Murthy if he ever met him in the streets.

”I leave Asturias with the job done!!! We leave you in the first division”.
