Getafe have hired Argentine coach Juan Eduardo Esnaider after sacking Fran Escriba on Monday in an attempt to avoid relegation from La Liga.
Esnaider is familiar with the club, having been an assistant there from 2009 to 2011, and will begin his reign with a fiery derby against city rivals Real Madrid on Saturday, live on Sky Sports.
The 43-year-old has a big job on his hands despite his side sitting just two points adrift of safety as they are without a win in 12 games and only have six games left.
Esnaider has no experience managing in La Liga, his only previous managerial roles have been for Cordoba in the second tier of Spanish football in 2013 and Real Zaragoza B.
He does have plenty of experience playing in La Liga, though, having spent time at Real Madrid, Real Zaragoza and Atletico Madrid.
