Jul 4, 2017-

Las Palmas have appointed reserve team boss Manolo Marquez as their new head coach, the Spanish club said on Monday amid reports in Spain that he was second choice for the job after their approach for Italian Roberto De Zerbi fell through. Marquez has never coached a top-flight side but gained popularity at Las Palmas by guiding their reserve team to promotion from the Tercera Division to the Segunda Division B in his first campaign with the club. He has previously coached Espanyol’s reserve side and will work alongside former Spain international and Las Palmas fan favourite Juan Carlos Valeron.
