Juan Ramón López Muñiz has returned to La Rosaleda to take the reins at Málaga CF for a second time.

Torres capture
The 40-year-old capped his previous two-season spell at the Andalusian side with promotion in 2007/08 and though he switched to Real Racing Club for last term, he is back on a two-year deal. He replaces Antonio Tapia, who quit to take over at relegated Real Betis Balompié after guiding the team to eighth in the Liga. López Muñiz is not the only arrival at La Rosaleda after the side announced the capture of Xavi Torres on a free transfer from FC Barcelona. The 22-year-old midfielder has signed a four-year contract.
