Espanyol appoint sporting director

Oscar Perarnau has been promoted by Espanyol to the position of sporting director, replacing Ramon Planes.

Planes left his position alongside Mauricio Pochettino as Coach and new President Joan Collet, after two weeks of consideration, has turned to 38-year-old Perarnau.

Perarnau has worked his way through the ranks at the Catalan club, working with the various levels of youth development before more recently doing a lot of behind-the-scenes transfer work that Planes and Pochettino would then take a final say on.
