Garitano will sign for Leganés as coach until 2022

The club has made the incorporation official early in the afternoon. You have one more optional year in case of promotion to First. Returns with Miguel Pérez.


Leganés has reached an agreement to incorporate Asier Garitano as the new coach of the cucumber team after yesterday firing José Luis Martí, the coach who had started the season. The announcement was made official early in the afternoon shortly after the coach signed his new contract at the Butarque Sports Facility, from where he started his first training session at the Butarque Stadium. Sign until 2022 with an option for one more year in case of promotion to First. It will be presented this Thursday at 1:00 p.m. The signature arrived shortly after Martí and his coaching staff said goodbye to the players and signed their settlement in Butarque.

As AS reported yesterday, there were advanced negotiations. Garitano has already been this morning in Leganés. It has passed the PCR that LaLiga requires before starting training. The protocol will not allow you to direct it yet, but it is hoped that tomorrow you can. For now he has had to settle for watching him from the stands. It should be remembered that the team has two days off. For this reason, and also to be able to adapt all the details, the staff did not return to work in the morning, but did so in the afternoon, at 5:00 p.m., and in a different setting: the Butarque Municipal Stadium.

The club does not want prying eyes who can see from close points what happens in that first session. At Butarque privacy is absolute, something that does not happen at ID Butarque, its training center. The distance is also greater and allows the training to be monitored without any risk.

Objective: tying the play-off to a minimum

Garitano's objective for the remainder of the season will be to try for promotion, but in the team's current situation (eleven points from direct promotion, sixth tied with seventh) the first step will be to ensure the play-off.

In addition, the club is working at full speed to analyze the possible needs that may arise in the remaining five days of the market. It will be the time that Garitano will have to prepare his redebut with the pepineros. The team will play the 23rd matchday against Lugo in Butarque on Monday, February 1 at 19: 00.

Garitano will not only arrive in Butarque. He will be accompanied by Miguel Pérez, his physical trainer. Miguel was part of the Garitano staff during his years at Leganés and later accompanied him on projects for Real Sociedad and Alavés. In fact, Pérez was already part of Leganés when the pepineros signed Garitano in 2013, even in Second B. In his case, he joined a year before as a member of the blue and white subsidiary. The rest of the coaching staff will be defined when the signing becomes official.
