Getafe name Luis Garcia Plaza as new coach

Getafe have replaced coach Michel with Luis Garcia Plaza.

The club announced the former Levante boss, who resigned from that post on Tuesday, would hold his first Getafe press conference tomorrow at mid-day.

He succeeds Michel who was sacked at the end of last season, after Getafe finished 16th and only narrowly avoided relegation.

Luis Garcia, 38, had his playing career cut short by injury in 2000 but has forged a successful coaching career, and steered Levante into the Spain top-flight last year.

According to reports, he has agreed a three-year contract with Getafe, who have been under the ownership of Dubai-based Royal Emirates Group since April.
