Celta Vigo appoint Antonio MohamedMay 23, 2018
Celta Vigo have appointed Antonio Mohamed as their new boss following the departure of Juan Carlos Unzue.
The 48-year-old coach has been very much a journeyman in recent seasons, having spent 15 years coaching in Mexico.
His spell in Spanish football will be his first, seeing the Galician side hand him a two-year contract to replace former Barcelona assistant Unzue, who failed to push the club to a Europa League place and top half finish.
Whilst Unzue was expected to remain in charge, the club deemed his efforts not good enough, despite only being in charge for one season.
Argentine media TyC sports stated on Tuesday afternoon that an agreement had been struck between Celta and Mohamed’s officials and that has now been confirmed.
Mohamed has twice won the Mexican league title with Tijuana and America in 2012 and 2014, respectively.
A press conference is expected to be held in the coming weeks, whilst plans are now being put in place for a number of exits and key arrivals for Mohamed’s playing squad next season.
During the Argentine midfielder’s playing career – he won the Copa America with his country, representing them on four occasions, whilst he had spells with Boca Juniors and Independiente in his homeland.
