Brugge announces Garrido as coach
BRUGES, Belgium (AP) -FC Brugge has hired former Villarreal coach Juan Carlos Garrido to lead the team out of its crisis.
One of Belgium's most famous clubs is eighth in the league and last week fired former national coach Georges Leekens following four successive losses.
It contracted Garrido to the end of the season on Thursday with allowance for an extension.
Garrido was let go by Villarreal in the middle of last season as the club was slipping toward relegation in the Spanish league.
