Girona have hired former Barcelona and Spain midfielder Eusebio Sacristan as their new head coach.

The Catalan club, who finished 10th in La Liga last season, said the 54-year-old has signed a two-year contract and would be presented on Friday.

He replaces Pablo Machin, who left the club last month to take the top job at Sevilla.

Eusebio had managed Real Sociedad since 2015 but was sacked in March with the team in mid-table.
