Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Va­len­cia says for­mer Italy man­ager Ce­sare Pran­delli has agreed to be­come the new man­ager of the Span­ish club.

Va­len­cia says Pran­delli has signed a con­tract through June 2018.

Care­taker coach Sal­vador "Voro" Gon­za­lez will be in charge of the team for to­day's Span­ish league match against Atletico Madrid be­fore Pran­delli takes over.

The 59-year-old Pran­delli coached Italy from 2010-14, and guided the team to the fi­nal of the 2012 Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship where it lost to Spain.

He has coached sev­eral Ital­ian teams, in­clud­ing a five-year stint at Fiorentina. He also coached Galatasaray in Turkey in 2014-15.

Va­len­cia fired for­mer coach Pako Ayestaran last week af­ter the team lost the first four matches of the sea­son. It has since won two straight un­der Voro.

Pran­delli is Va­len­cia's eighth full-time man­ager since Unai Emery's four-year stint ended in 2012.
