Espanyol to announce new Coach

Sergio Gonzalez is expected to be confirmed as the new Coach of Espanyol tomorrow, reports in Spain have said.

AS claims Espanyol could announce the appointment at a Press conference and barring any unforeseen events, Sergio is effectively the new boss at Cornella-El Prat.

A number of names have been mentioned as replacements for Javier Aguirre, including Javi Gracia, Jose Angel Ziganda and Gaizka Garitano, Coach of newly-promoted Eibar.

But Gonzalez is the chosen successor, it’s believed, having previously been in charge of the Espanyol B team.

A midfielder, he previously played more than 100 times for Espanyol, and also represented Deportivo La Coruna for the best part of a decade.
