Celta Vigo have appointed former Barcelona assistant Juan Carlos Unzue as their new coach on a two-year deal, the Spanish club announced on Sunday.

Former goalkeeper Unzue was Luis Enrique’s right hand man at Celta in the 2013/14 season and followed him to Barcelona, where they won nine trophies in three years, culminating in winning the King’s Cup on Saturday by beating Alaves 3-1.

The 50-year-old’s only job as a first team coach was with Numancia in Spain’s second tier in 2010-11.

Unzue replaces Argentine coach Eduardo Berizzo, who decided against renewing his contract after spending three years with the club, leading them to the semi-finals of the Europa League for the first time, and two successive King’s Cup semi-finals.

Berizzo is expected to take the vacant job at Sevilla, whose former coach Jorge Sampaoli is set to take over the Argentine national side next week.
