    LA CEIBA, Honduras – Honduran side Victoria introduced Carlos Martinez as head coach at a press conference on Monday. 

    Martinez replaces Hector Vargas, who stepped down after two years to take charge at Olimpia.
     
    "It's a privilege and an honor for me to introduce the great fans of Victoria to our new coach Carlos Martinez,” said Victoria president, Carlos Molineros.  “We are very happy to have him with us.  We have high expectations.  I believe we chose well.”

    Victoria finished third in the 2013 Clausura and runner-up in the 2012 Apertura, but fell to seventh place in this season’s table, just missing out on a playoff berth.  It also dropped each of its four decisions in the CONCACAF Champions League, falling to both Club Tijuana and Luis Angel Firpo twice.
     
    "I'm happy in this new challenge in this great institution,” commented Martinez, who has coached six other Honduran teams, including Marathon.  “I promise to do my best to lead the team to the top with work.  We need the support of the directors and our fans to get back to first place."
