Real Madrid legend Sanchez "excited" about Almeria job

Real Madrid legend Hugo Sanchez is excited to be back in Spanish football as coach of Almeria.

The former Mexico coach was presented to the local media yesterday and declared: "I am happy about this new adventure. It reminded me of when I was on the plane here from Mexico, where for the first time I had the opportunity to come to Spanish football as a player. This is a new phase for me as a coach. I'm happy and excited.

"I thank the president, Alfonso Garcia, who spoke to me very frankly, very straightforward. We share the same ideas and he showed confidence in me, which I appreciate. I hope that in this new adventure we can emerge very connected.

"I come from Cancun. I did not expect that my Christmas gift was recruitment by Almeria. I am grateful to 'Santa Claus Alfonso Garcia'."
