Mauricio Pellegrino named manager of Leganes

The Argentine left St Mary’s earlier this year to be replaced by Mark Hughes.

Mauricio Pellegrino named manager of Leganes

Former Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino has been appointed the new manager of LaLiga side Leganes.

The Argentine was sacked by Southampton in March after a run of just one win in 17 games left them in relegation trouble before the appointment of Mark Hughes saved their top-flight status.

The Spanish club announced on their official website that Pellegrino has signed a one-year deal to replace Asier Garitano.

Garitano guided Leganes from the third tier to LaLiga for the first time in their history and then led the club to the Copa del Rey semi-finals last season.

But he recently left to take charge of Real Sociedad, paving the way for Pellegrino to return to Spain, where he has previously managed Valencia and Alaves.
