Levante announced today, Thursday, the appointment of Spanish Javier Pereira as the new coach of the team until next June, with the possibility of extending the contract for two additional seasons.

Levante’s announcement came after Pereira terminated his contract with China’s Henan Songshan, to succeed Paco Lopez, who was sacked this week for poor results.

In turn, the Chinese club confirmed on its official website, as well as Pereira in “Twitter”, that they had reached an amicable agreement to terminate the contract, which was to last until the end of this year.

Pereira, 55, took the position of assistant coach Juan Ignacio Martinez during his training for Levante between 2011 and 2012, and before he trained in China, he worked as an assistant coach for such coaches as Jordi Cruyff and Oscar Garcia, as well as the sporting director of Fulham.

He will take over as Pereira’s assistant, former Levante player in the 1993-94 season Agustin Izquierdo.

Pereira’s coaching staff will also include Pedro Lopez, who retired from playing this summer.
