Former Tottenham Hotspur joint-head coach Juan Amoros has been appointed the new coach of Spanish club Real Betis according to reports on their official club website.
The 36-year-old spent nine successful years with Spurs before both himself and fellow joint-head coach Karen Hills were dismissed by the North Londoners in November following a difficult start to the season.
Amoros helped Spurs rise through the footballing period to reach the Barclays FA Women’s Super League after winning promotion from the second tier in 2019. Under the guidance of Hills and Amoros, Spurs recorded a seventh-placed finish in their debut campaign in the top flight in 2019/2020, the final standings being calculated on a points-per-game basis following the early curtailment of the season due to COVID-19.
It has today been announced that Amoros has been appointed as the new coach of Spanish top flight side Real Betis. Amoros will initially take charge of the club for the remainder of the season and will have the option to extend his deal by a further year.
The Spaniard’s primary task will be to keep Real Betis in the Primera Iberdrola. The Green and Whites are currently embroiled in a relegation battle after collecting just seven points from their opening 14 matches. He will take charge of his new club for the first time when Real Betis host Madrid on 23 January.
