Rufete will manage the first team until the end of the season
This morning, RCD Espanyol de Barcelona decided that Francisco Joaquín Pérez Rufete, the current Sports Director, will take over the management of the Blue and White first team until the end of the season.
The club wants to express to all of its fans that this decision is taken on the basis of a deep conviction in the club's sporting objectives and with a clear aim of achieving the goals it has set out.
The club will only manage to avoid relegation with compromise and unity from everyone involved. In the current situation, this is the only way of facing up to the future.
With just seven days left, we're not where we'd like to be. That's why the whole club is working together with the hope and dream of achieving our aims. The only way we can reverse the difficult situation we're in is with unity, commitment, collaboration and loyalty.
This afternoon at 6 pm, Rufete will run his first training session before tomorrow's game against Real Madrid.
