German coach Bernd Schuster has been confirmed as the new coach of Getafe.

Schuster was sacked by Levante towards the end of last season, shortly before the club were relegated.

“The truth is I was preparing myself to look for something outside Spain because it was looking difficult this year as there weren’t many changes on the benches,” he stated.

“Every year it gets more complicated to find teams, but you have to be patient.

“I am very happy to be at Getafe and to continue in Spain, which is what I wanted most.”
