The Spanish elite Alaves has a new coach. This is Xavi Kayeha, the club boasted. He will aim to save the team from relegation. Alaves fired former coach Abelardo Fernandez.
Kayeha has experience in battles for survival, helping Villarreal stay in the elite in the 2018-2019 season. Alaves played in the final of the UEFA Cup in 2001, but then dropped out of the first division, returning in 2016.
"This is a great club and a great challenge. I want to do my job. I am excited and I believe that we will be able to stay," said the specialist.
