This is his first coaching assignment in Europe after testing in Argentina, Mexico, Colombia and with the Saudi Al-Shabab club in 2019.
Almiron succeeds local coach Juan Jose Rojo Martin “Pacita”, one of the stars of “Martinez Valero” stadium, since the team’s rise to the first division was secured last Sunday at the expense of Girona in the supplement.
The expiring 52-year-old Bachita, who arrived at the club in 2018 when he was in the third division, has not been renewed and has led him to rise in two consecutive seasons.
