European champions Porto have confirmed the appointment of Spaniard Victor Fernandez as their new coach.

Fernandez replaces Luigi Del Neri, who was sacked by the club on Saturday, less than two months after taking up the position.

Fernandez, 43, who has previously coached Celta Vigo and Real Zaragoza, signed a two-year contract with the Portuguese champions.

Porto revealed on Saturday they had agreed to terminate Italian Del Neri’s contract the previous day “for personal reasons”.

Del Neri succeeded Jose Mourinho, who left to manage Chelsea after guiding Porto to the Portuguese title and victory in the Champions League final last May.
