Ex-Cagliari Coach Diego Lopez has been named as the new manager of Uruguayan club Penarol.
A statement from the side confirmed that he had been chosen “unanimously” by the Board of Directors.
Lopez will hold a presentation event at the Campeon del Siglo stadium on Saturday.
The 43-year-old is from Uruguay, but spent much of his playing and management career in Italy.
He played for Cagliari between 1998 and 2010, then retired and became a Coach in their youth academy.
