Real Betis coach Pellegrini: Coudet will be great for Celta Vigo and LaLiga

Real Betis coach Manuel Pellegrini has no doubts Celta Vigo counterpart Eduardo Coudet can be successful in LaLiga.

Pellegrini coached Coudet when they were together at River Plate.

Ahead of tonight's clash, he recalled: "I had the fortune of directing Eduardo as River coach in Argentina, a player who later came to Europe , with great dedication, leadership over the group and from that moment it seemed to me that he was going to be a coach.

"He decided and has shown in South America his ability and coming to Spain are good for his progress and it is good for the Liga to have him.

"He proposes a football that reflects his great team mentality. That has been transmitted to Celta and I'm very happy for him. Surely Spain has a high-quality coach for many years."
