Madrid, June 26 (IANS) Jose Ramon Sandoval has been confirmed as the coach of Spanish football club Granada.
Sandoval, who was in charge of Granada for the last four games of last season, leading the La Liga side outfit to three wins and a draw which helped maintain them in the premier football competition in the country, agreed terms in the early hours of Friday morning, reports Xinhua.
He has signed a one-year contract after several weeks negotiation over extending the short-term contract he had last season.
Sandoval had previously worked with Rayo Vallecano and Sporting Gijon and his agreement means that the only side in the La Liga still to confirm their coach for next season is Eibar.
The Basque side, who returned to the top-flight in the wake of Elche’s failure to meet payments to certain players on time, are expected to name Jose Luis Mendilibar as their coach in the coming days.
