Fenerbahce have announced that they have agreed a two-year contract with Spain coach Luis Aragones.
Aragones, who will step down from his post from his current post after Euro 2008, will fill the void left by Zico, who left Fenerbahce after two years in charge.
“Our club has made a two-year preliminary contract with Luis Aragones, who is currently the technical director of the Spain national team, to be our soccer coach in the new season,” Fenerbahce said.
Aragones enjoyed an illustrious playing career at Atletico Madrid, then steered the club to victory in the Intercontinental Cup in 1975, the domestic Cup in 1976 and the league title in 1977.
He had five separate spells at Atletico as well as stints at Barcelona, Betis, Valencia and Real Mallorca.
