Depor turn to Garitano

Deportivo La Coruna have decided on Gaizka Garitano, the former Eibar and Real Valladolid Coach, to take over on a one-year contract.

AS reports the Galician club’s council voted on four options offered by sporting director Richard Barral – Garitano, Sergio Gonzalez, Luis Cesar and Ruben Baraja, and it was Garitano who received the backing of the decision-makers.

Paco Jemez had been touted for Riazor but his move from Rayo Vallecano is said to have broken down after the parties conducted negotiations.

Garitano will sign a one-year contract and have Patxi Ferreira as his assistant, the 40-year-old replacing Victor Sanchez del Amo.
