RIP. Heart attack at 54, christ. Stresses of football sure, but 54...
He's had a shitty turn of affairs family wise. I hope there's a heaven and you are blisfully reunited with the wife and son there, Manuel.
In 2002, Preciado's wife died from cancer. Two years later, his 15-year old son (one of two the couple had) was killed in a car crash. He later claimed about the incidents: "I could have shot myself or I could have carried on".
On 20 April 2011, Preciado's father, also named Manuel, died after being run over in Santander.
On 7 June 2012, Preciado passed away from a heart attack, one day after signing as Villarreal CF head coach.[
