Sánchez Is The Man In Almería

New Almería coach Hugo Sánchez

Former Real Madrid legend Hugo Sánchez is close to signing on as boss man for Almería.  Sánchez was the surprise pick as there were coaches that were other coaches being considered for the job before him.  Hector Cuper, Michel, and Víctor Fernández were the top candidates as of Sunday evening when Arconada was given his marching order after Numancia lost in dramatic fashion to Sporting Gijón.  The loss put them 16th place only three points in front of Espanyol in the relegation race.

According to sources, “Hugol” will come back to the sidelines after a disastrous end to his tenure as Mexican national team coach earlier in 2008.   El Pentapichichi will ironically replace Gonzalo Arconada, brother of former Spanish international Luis Arconada, who was a victim of the former Mexican international’s scoring ability in the mid and late 80’s.   Hugol will sign for the remainder of the season with an option to another year in the event he saves them from relegation.  Almería presidente Alfonso Pérez promised his new coach with two new reinforcements during the winter transfer window.

Arconada struggled  so far this year after seeing Almería become the surprise team of last season in Spain.  Arconada’s sophomore season has not been so kind as the team as the team was not “able to perform under any circumstance”.
