Nelson Mauricio Ancheta Flores (born 30 July 1963 in Chalchuapa) is a former Salvadoran football player and coach. He currently coaches Luis Ángel Firpo in the Segunda División.

Playing days[edit]

Nelson Ancheta began his career playing for Universidad Católica of El Salvador during his youth. Afterwards he joined Once Lobos where he would play eleven years in two different spells (playing in between the Primera División and Segunda División ). He would go on to play for UCA and Huracán; the latter would be where he would finish his playing career.

Coaching career[edit]

Ancheta's coaching career began in 1987, debuting with Fuerte Fronterizo in the Liga B. However, he had to wait until 1994 to coach a first team squad, this time with Juventud Candelaria in the Tercera División. This was followed with coaching the club he had played in previously, Once Lobos, both the reserves and then later the main team (playing in the Segunda División at the time).

In 1999 he coached Isidro Menéndez, now known as Isidro Metapan.

In 2000, he became the assistant coach of Agustin Castillo C.D. FAS' main team and the coach of FAS reserve team. During these periods, FAS won five championships and Ancheta managed to coach FAS for 11 games.

Afterwards he transferred to Atletico Balboa.

Ancheta was offered the coaching job for Once Municipal, which led to his most successful tenure in his coaching career, winning his first and so far only domestic title with them (winning the 2006 Apertura title after defeating his old club FAS 3-1) , while also capturing the Copa Presidente.

However, difference with the club's president meant that he left his coaching position [1]. He then returned to FAS to take over as head coach of the team. He took the club to two consecutive finals; however, he lost on both occasions.

He left the club after a disagreement with the board of the club and joined low table team Nejapa FC. With smart recruitment and clever tactics he took Nejapa FC to their first and only semi-finals. However, the club was destroyed 6-1 on aggregate and he left the club following this loss.

He coached various clubs in the next couple of years, including Once Municipal, Alianza FC, C.D. Aguila and Firpo, with varying degrees of success.

He then joined the newly formed club Ciclon del Golfo and helped them win Segunda Division 2-1 aggregate victory over Turin FESA.

He then took over the reins of Dragon and led them to the club's first finals game in clausura/Apertura format and almost helped Dragon win their first title in 70 years. However, the club lost against Isidro Metapan. A pay dispute with the Dragon board of directors meant that he left the club [2].

Ancheta joined Firpo in the quest to regain promotion back into the primera division. However, in their first campaign, despite going 16 games undefeated in the regular season, they were knocked out in the quarter final.

Ancheta had his first coaching job abroad by coaching Deportivo Malacateco in Guatemala, however his time there was a poor one in the fourteen games he coached the team won two games, drew four and lost eleven. On November 5, 2015 he resigned as coach of Deportivo Malacateco [3].
