Espanyol have appointed Mexican Javier Aguirre as their new coach after Argentine Mauricio Pochettino was sacked on Monday.

Aguirre, 53, has previously coached Osasuna, Atletico Madrid and Real Zaragoza in Spain as well as taking charge of Mexico at the 2002 and 2010 World Cups where they reached the second round on both occasions.

"Espanyol and Javier Aguirre have reached an agreement for the Mexican to be the coach of the Catalan club until the end of the season," read a club statement.

Barcelona-based Espanyol are currently bottom of La Liga with just nine points from 13 games.
