Celta appoint Minambres

Celta Vigo have appointed Felipe Minambres as sporting director after the former Spain midfielder left Rayo Vallecano.

Minambres’ exit from Vallecas was confirmed earlier in the week and he has pitched up at Balaidos, Celta having been in need of a successor to Miguel Torrecilla, who left for Real Betis late in the season.

The ex-Tenerife player, pictured above, right, will sign his contract with Celta on Friday, AS reports, after spending nine years at Rayo, including a spell as Coach.
