Pako Ayestarán to join Valencia CF

Pako Ayestarán is going to join Valencia CF coaching staff, he will not be replacing anyone of the coaching stuff, he will just be an additional staff focusing on the physical training of the players.

As most of you probably know Pako Ayestarán was assistant to Rafa Benitez at Valencia CF from 2001 to 2004 in which Valencia CF had huge success and won several titles. He then followed Rafa Benitez to Liverpool and was assistant manager there from 2004 to 2007.

He's also tried to coach himself as well with mixed results at best and he's been out of work for several months now after he was sacked as manager of Santos Laguna. He joins Gary Neville's coaching team and will look to improve the players physical condition and stamina, something which many of the players have been lacking.
