The 45-year old will join up with the club next week, in time for pre-season training and preparations.

“I think my philosophy and the culture of the club will work well together. We have to be a team on and off the pitch; I want to make the supporters proud of the players and to feel part of the game every week. I want to win matches, be successful and develop a team spirit where everyone gives 100 per cent and supports each other.” – Mauricio Pellegrino

His resume hasn’t exactly set the world on fire. Hopeful this isn’t another appointment in the vein of Puel.
