Benito Floro has been named as the replacement for Luis Aragonés as coach of RCD Mallorca.

Spanish call
The 52-year-old coach has stepped in after Aragonés left the club with a year still to run on his contract in order to take over from Iñaki Sáez as coach of the Spanish national team. Floro has signed a one-year deal with his new club.

'Promise to deliver'
"I would like to thank Mallorca for the confidence they have placed in me," he said. "I promise to deliver hard work, hope and serenity throughout what looks set to be another tough season in a league as competitive as Spain's."

Villarreal success
Floro's last posting saw him win the UEFA Intertoto Cup with Villarreal CF in 2003. He has previously worked at Real Madrid CF, Albacete Balompié and Real Sporting de Gijón as well as Japanese side Vissel Kobe and Mexican club CF Monterrey.
