Francisco 'Fran' Escribá Segura (born 3 May 1965) is a Spanish football manager, currently in charge of Villarreal CF.

Club career[edit]

Born in Valencia, Escribá played youth football with Valencia CF, but never competed as a professional. In 2002 he returned to the club, taking care of the youth sides.

In 2004, Escribá started an association with Quique Sánchez Flores that would last several seasons, always as assistant. He started with Getafe CF, subsequently moving to S.L. Benfica and Atlético Madrid; the pair went their separate ways at the end of 2010–11, because the former wanted to have a go at head coaching.[1]

Escribá was appointed at Segunda División club Elche CF on 12 June 2012.[2] In his first year he led the Valencians to La Liga after an absence of 24 years[3] and, on 29 May 2013, renewed his contract for two more seasons.[4]

On 26 June 2015, following Elche's administrative relegation, Escribá was named Getafe CF manager.[5] On 11 April of the following year, with the team seriously threatened with relegation, he was sacked.[6]

On 11 August 2016, Escribá replaced Marcelino García Toral at the helm of Villarreal CF.[7]
