Official: Alaves appoint De Biasi

La Liga strugglers Alaves have appointed former Albania boss Gianni De Biasi as their new Coach.

A statement on Alaves’ official website confirms De Biasi has signed on until the end of the season, with the option for another year.

It marks a return to Spain for the 61-year-old, who coached Levante during the 2007-08 campaign.

However, he is best known for his six-year stint with Albania, taking the Shqiponjat from the doldrums to Euro 2016 – their first-ever major tournament.

Alaves, meanwhile, are rock bottom of La Liga after starting the season with five straight defeats.
