Paco Jemez was on Thursday appointed the new coach of Las Palmas, the struggling La Liga side announced.

Jemez is the club’s third manager this season and the 47-year-old inherits a team that has won just one of their last 13 Liga outings and only three in all.

Jemez, who will take up the post next week, was favourite to succeed sacked Pako Ayestaran after quitting as manager of Mexican side Cruz Azul last month.
