The Sociedad Deportiva Huesca has announced on Wednesday that the Andalusian Francisco Rodríguez, 40, will be the new coach of the team after the dismissal of the Argentine Leo Franco, who leaves the entity as bottom in LaLiga Santander after taking five points in the first eight days .
"The Andalusian coach will conduct his first training session tomorrow, before which his official presentation will take place at 10.30 am in the press room of El Alcoraz," the club said in a statement.
Francisco, an ex-football player who played 25 matches in the First Division with Albacete and scored a single goal, had his first opportunity as coach in the elite with Almería, in the 2013/14 campaign, in which he managed to stay in LaLiga. He was dismissed from the Andalusian club on day 12 of the following season.
Then he directed UCAM Murcia, team that was incorporated with the highly developed competition, what he did could not avoid the descent of the club to Segunda B. Last season he managed comfortably in the Second with CD Lugo. The good performance of the coach from Almeria this summer led to the call of Córdoba, who promised him a competitive team to fight for the promotion to First. The salary limit imposed by LaLiga to the Cordovan club distanced the reinforcements desired and at the beginning of August Francisco resigned just 30 days after signing: "I did not come for this," he said at the time.
Francisco arrives in Huesca accompanied by Jaime Ramos (second coach), José Ortega (assistant) and Sergio Pardo (physical trainer) who, together with Adrián Sipán and Adrián Mallén, will form the new coaching staff.
