Bakero joins Valencia as Koeman's No2

Former Real Sociedad coach Jose Mari Bakero will join Ronald Koeman's new backroom team at Valencia.

Bakero, an ex-Barcelona captain and teammate of Koeman's, had an offer to take charge of Segunda Liga Xerez, but was attracted by the prospect of getting back into the big-time with Valencia.

Koeman will call on Bakero as his top assistant.
