Celta Vigo have confirmed Eduardo Coudet will be their new head coach following the sacking of Oscar Garcia.

The Galician club have endured a tough start to the 2020-21 season, winning just one of their opening nine LaLiga games, form that has left them just outside the bottom three and cost Garcia his job.

Coudet arrives with a burgeoning reputation, having led Racing Club to the Argentinian title in 2019 before joining Internacional, whom he had taken to the summit of the Brasileiro before quitting on Tuesday.

The 46-year-old, a native of Argentina, spent his entire playing career in the Americas bar a short spell with Celta in 2002. He has signed on until 2022.

Oscar Garcia has been sacked by LaLiga strugglers Celta Vigo after just nine games of the season.

Celta are just one place and one point above the drop zone having managed a solitary victory in Spain's top flight in 2020-21.

A 1-1 draw at Elche proved to be Oscar's last game in charge, bringing an end to a year-long stay for the 47-year-old at Celta.

"Oscar Garcia Junyent and his coaching staff will no longer coach RC Celta," a club statement read.

"The club conveys its sincere gratitude, both to the Catalan coach and to his team, for the work, professionalism and effort they've shown throughout their time at RC Celta, in which they managed to consolidate LaLiga status during a complicated 2019-20 season.

"RC Celta wishes Oscar Garcia and his assistants the best of success in the future, both professionally and personally."

Oscar took over 12 months ago with Celta in the bottom three and managed to secure their status in LaLiga despite failing to win any of the last seven matches in 2019-20.

A nomadic coaching career has seen Oscar have stints at Maccabi Tel Aviv (twice), Brighton and Hove Albion, Watford, Salzburg, Saint-Etienne and Olympiacos.

Celta Vigo have appointed Oscar Garcia as their new head coach until the end of the 2019-20 season.

LaLiga strugglers Celta - 18th in the table on nine points after four straight defeats - have turned to the former Barcelona player after sacking Fran Escriba following a 1-0 loss to Getafe on Sunday.

Garcia's coaching career has seen him work in various leagues across Europe, including a spell with Maccabi Tel Aviv where he won the title in Israel.

He was also crowned champion twice in Austria while in charge of Salzburg and was most recently at Olympiacos, leaving his role at the Greek club last April.

Garcia also had stints in England with Brighton and Hove Albion and Watford, though he was only at the Hornets for 27 days in 2014 before stepping down for health reasons.

His first game in charge of Celta will see him return to Camp Nou, as his new employers travel to table-topping Barca on Saturday prior to November's international break.
