Sanchez Flores did a superb job at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez this season, taking over a team in dire straits and leading them to the security of a 15th placed finish in La Liga.
Sanchez Flores, 57, is one of the most experienced coaches in Spain. He entered coaching in 2001 after a playing career that saw him represent Valencia, Real Madrid and Real Zaragoza.
He also earned 15 caps with the Spanish national team.
Sanchez-Flores’ first coaching gig was with Madrid’s youth system. Since then he’s taken charge of Getafe, Valencia, Benfica, Atletico Madrid, Al-Ahli, Al-Ain, Getafe (again), Watford, Espanyol, Shanghai Shenhua, Watford (again) and now Getafe (again).
He’ll hope to help Getafe build on their solid end to the 2021/22 campaign with an improved 2022/23 season. Mid-table or even a top-half finish should certainly be in their sights.
