Real Madrid legend Hugo Sanchez takes Almeria job

Hugo Sanchez is back in Spanish football at Almeria.

The Real Madrid legend has been named new coach of Almeria after the dismissal of Gonzalo Arconada on Sunday night.

Sanchez has signed a deal to the end of this season, with the option of another 12 months if he keeps Almeria in the Primera Liga.

Almeria president Alfonso Garcia made a personal approach to Sanchez to clinch his agreement after discounting local candidates Paco Flores and Victor Fernandez.

Sanchez will travel to Spain this weekend and take charge of his first Almeria training session on Monday.
