Rumours have become truth. Joan Francesc Ferrer 'Rubi' is the new Espanyol coach, agreeing a two year deal.
The coach had previously said he would not continue at Huesca despite helping them up to La Liga for the first time in their history, and everyone expected he would take over at Espanyol.
Rubi returns to the club at which he coached the youth team for three seasons. After that he went to Benidorm, Girona, Levante, Sporting, Valladolid, Ibiza... despite being a young coach he has a vast experience at various levels.
After Quique Sanchez Flores was sacked the club worked to find a replacement to guide the team that has already lost Pau Lopez and Gerard Moreno, while David Lopez may go too.
Rubi will not have an easy job. He will be presented on Monday at 12pm.
