Former Watford manager Oscar Garcia has been unveiled as the new St. Etienne manager, replacing Christophe Galtier on a two-year-deal.
The Spaniard leaves Red Bull Salzburg following his successful season where he guided the club to an Austrian league and cup double, and will look to take his success over to Les Verts.
“Welcome to Oscar Garcia and his staff at ASSE,” club chairman Bernard Caiazzo told the official club website. “ASSE wanted a coach of international dimension, capable of producing good football on the pitch. Congratulations to (president) Roland Romeyer and his team for having signed such a good manager in less than four weeks.”
“We chose Oscar Garcia because he seems to us to be the man with his staff who best corresponds with the values of Les Verts.”
