Roberto Íñiguezhas conquered leagues in Spain, Turkey and Hungary. With this last title of the Perfumeries Avenida, the azulón coach adds his sixth league and culminates a successful course on his return to Spain in which he has achieved a more than worthy double.
His first experience in women’s basketball after leading Valencia Basket in the EBA League was with him Ros Casares in the 12/11 academic year. Íñiguez did not win the Queen’s Cup that year, but he did win his first Euroleague and his first national league title.
There he made way for a career in which the Basque coach has shown a certain fixation on winning league titles. A campaign after his first success at Ros Casares, the Azulón coach crossed borders and extended his success to the Turkish league with the help of Fenerbahce. There he raised the cup of the national competition (12/13) and got into the final of the following campaign, this time without a prize.
On 14/15 he directed the Uni Girona and once again, he reached the final of the LF Endesa. Nor did he win the cup that season but he added his fourth consecutive league final and his second in national territory. After his time in the Catalan team, he began a stage in Russia with the help of the Nadezhda Orenburg. Although, in this adventure he did not get any league title, he reached the final in 2016.
In the 16/17 academic year, Íñiguez changed Russia for Hungary and there he did completely dominate the national competition. Lifted the title for three consecutive seasons. After winning it all with him Sopron, he returned to Russia and last year he was on the verge of playing his eighth league final due to the suspension of competitions caused by covid-19.
He has contested that eighth final of his journey on the bench during this last week and it has undoubtedly been a title fight to remember. After giving up in the first clash, the Azulón team managed to rebuild and prevent the rival’s victory at La Fonteta. With the third game at home, everything went in favor of a Perfumerías Avenida that has been champion of the competition for the seventh time in its history.
