Valencia confirm Prandelli as new coach

Pako Ayestaran’s successor in the Estadio Mestalla hotseat has been officially announced as Cesare Prandelli.

Enjoying a long and fruitful career in charge of, among others, Italy, Fiorentina, and Galatasaray, the 59-year-old is making his first venture into LaLiga with Los Che.

Putting pen to paper on a two-year deal which runs until June 30, 2018, the coach will be in the stands as Valencia host Atletico Madrid on Sunday, allowing Voro Gonzalez to complete his interim tenure.

When Monday comes around Prandelli will take charge of his first training session and meet the media.

After flying in on Saturday, the Italian is joined on the east coast by a number of his long-time assistants, namely Gabrielle Pin, Renzo Ciulli, Valter Vio, and Nicolo Prandelli.
