Pique appoints ex-Barcelona No2 Sarabia as Andorra coach

Andorra owner Gerard Pique has hired his former Barcelona assistant coach Eder Sarabia.

Sarabia has signed a contract with Pique's club for two and a half seasons, although the move came as somewhat of a surprise with Andorra sitting second in the league and on a good winning run.

They are only one point adrift of leaders Nastic, and Sarabia is taking charge of a very confident team at this moment.

It's an ironic turnaround of events, with Sarabia having actually coached Pique himself last season as part of Quique Setien's hastily assembled coaching staff.

Having been made unemployed along with the former Real Betis coach, Sarabia has been looking for alternative opportunities in football, and he will now replace the outgoing Nacho Castro.
