CD Montesinos have announced a new manager – 48 hours after sacking Carlos Perez at the 1st Regional Valencia Group 8 club.
Ruben Saez Juarez – a former player at the Alicante based Los Montesinos outfit – has been named as Perez’s successor.
A meeting took place after the sacking of former Torrevieja player Perez on Monday, who was in his third season at the club.
Ruben has been in charge of CD Montesinos youth team and is seen as the coach to step up to a senior role at the club.
Ruben, born in Los Montesinos, was given the chief coaching position following a management committee meeting on November 21.
Perez was axed after a poor run of results, just two seasons after gaining promotion to 1st Regional.
“It is Ruben’s next step of his career and his objective is to end this season in a comfortable mid table position”, said a spokesperson from the club.
Ruben will take charge of his first game on Sunday, as CD Montesinos host Santa Pola CF at the Municipal stadium. Kick off 4.30pm.
CD Montesinos, who have 20 games remaining in the 2018-19 season, find themselves near the foot of the table in the Valencian 1st Regional Group 8.
