UD Ibiza name former goalkeeper Andres Palop as Coach

Segunda Division B outfit UD Ibiza have announced that former Sevilla goalkeeper Andres Palop is their new Coach.

The 44-year-old enjoyed a 17-year long professional career including spells with Valencia, Villarreal and Bayer Leverkusen but was most known for his stint at Sevilla between 2005 and 2013.

He went on to manage CD Alcoyano for 18 months between 2015 and 2016 but has worked in Spanish media roles since.

Palop replaces Antonio Mendez in the role for the holiday resort based club on the Balaeric Islands, who were promoted to Spain’s third tier this summer for the first time since their formation in 2015.
