Official: Getafe appoint Escriba

Getafe have appointed Fran Escriba as their new Coach on a three-year contract.

The former Elche boss replaces Pablo Franco at Coliseum Alfonso Perez and will be officially unveiled next Tuesday at 12:00 BST.

Escriba comfortably guided Elche to midtable safety in La Liga last season, but the Valencians were demoted as a result of financial irregularities, forcing the 50-year-old to leave the club.

El Geta, meanwhile, finished two places below in 15th but managed to reach an agreement with Spanish treasury Hacienda over unpaid tax bills to preserve their top-flight status.
