Marcelino to be confirmed new coach of Athletic Bilbao

Marcelino is the new coach of Athletic Bilbao.

Gaizka Garitano was fired yesterday, despite victory over Elche on the weekend.

Former Valencia boss Marcelino is now taking charge, though it's yet to be confirmed when he will first work with the players. Athletic meet Barcelona on Wednesday night.

Athletic were due to train this morning, though Mundo Deportivo says that session will now switch to the evening.

And it's expected Marcelino will be present to address the players and take training Monday night.
