MADRID - Sevilla have completed the
signing of Marcelino Garcia as their new coach in place of
Gregorio Manzano, the La Liga club said on Tuesday.
"I believe we have a coach for the longer term, it's the
first time I have drawn up a contract like Marcelino's,"
President Jose Maria del Nido told a news conference with the
former Racing Santander coach.
"He is signing for one season with an option for two more
depending on results," Del Nido added.
Marcelino said last week he was walking away from his
contract with Racing, which ran until the end of next season,
accusing Indian owner Ahsan Ali Syed of failing to honour his
promises. Racing have yet to confirm Marcelino's departure.
Manzano led Sevilla to fifth place last season and a spot in
the Europa League, the continent's second-tier club competition,
before Del Nido decided not to extend his contract.
