Atletico Madrid have appointed former Boca Juniors coach Carlos Bianchi as their manager for the next two seasons.

The Argentinian, who quit Boca in July last year, replaces Cesar Ferrando who was sacked last week after the club finished a disappointing 11th place in the standings.

Atletico confirmed that Bianchi would be presented to the media later today at the club’s Vicente Calderon stadium.
