Manolo Villanova is the man tasked with leading Real Zaragoza away from relegation trouble following the resignation of Javier Irureta on Monday.

Villanova, who had been in charge at third division side Huesca, was quickly drafted in after Irureta´s departure and the veteran becomes Zaragoza´s fourth coach of the season following Irureta, Ander Garitano and Victor Fernandez.

Villanova´s immediate job will be to improve Zaragoza´s standing in the table, with the team slipping to 17th place in the wake of Sunday´s 2-1 defeat against rock-bottom Levante.
