The Argentinian trainer will replace the sacked Benito Floro and will also become the club’s sports director after extended negotiations over the weekend.

Cuper was very successful during his first stint in charge, between 1997 and 1999, when he led the club to the Uefa Cup final and the Copa del Rey final and saw them finish third in the league.

“Our idea has been that Cuper would return to Mallorca one day, since the time that he left,” claimed Mallorca president Mateo Alemany.

After for Valencia from Claudio Ranieri, Cuper then switched to Internazionale, but he was sacked after a poor star to the 2003-04 season.
