Athletic Club have confirmed the appointment of new head coach Marcelino García-Toral.

The former Valencia manager joins the Basque club on a deal until June 30, 2022. Gaizka Garitano was sacked by Athletic earlier on Sunday, despite their 1-0 win over Elche.

Marcelino joins the Primera side with a wealth of experience, having managed Villarreal, Sevilla and Valencia in Spain’s top flight. The 55-year-old helped guide Valencia to Copa del Rey success in the 2018-19 season.
