Jiménez replaces Aguirre as Zaragoza coach

Former Sevilla FC and AEK Athens FC boss Manolo Jiménez has been appointed coach of struggling Real Zaragoza until the end of the season, replacing Mexican Javier Aguirre.

Manolo Jiménez has been appointed Real Zaragoza coach until the end of the campaign, replacing Javier Aguirre.

The 47-year-old former Sevilla FC boss returns to his native Spain after a 12-month spell with AEK Athens FC, which brought the 2011 Greek Cup, ended in October. The former international full-back led Sevilla to third in the Liga in 2008/09, reaching the UEFA Champions League round of 16 the following season. Aguirre was dismissed last week with Zaragoza bottom after a disappointing start to the campaign of just two league wins in 16 matches.
