Deportivo boss Fernando Vazquez has insisted that Levante Coach Juan Ignacio Martinez is 'the best in the League'.
The Turcos face the Granotes this weekend looking for the three points that could take them out of the relegation places.
But the 58-year-old has claimed that 'JIM' is Spain's outstanding tactician.
“Martinez is definitely the best Coach in the League if you look at the last two years,” he told a Press conference.
“We limited resources, he had an impressive season last year and this year is on the same line.
“To get into Europe is very admirable.
“It is going to be a tremendous challenge for us. It's going to be very difficult.”
