Struggling Levante appoint Pereira as manager

Levante have appointed Spaniard Javier Pereira as Paco Lopez's successor until June 2022 with an option for two more years, the LaLiga club said in a statement https://www.levanteud.com/es/info/javier-pereira-se-convierte-en-entrenador-del-levante-ud on Thursday.

Levante sacked Lopez on Sunday following their 1-0 defeat at Mallorca a day earlier - making him the first LaLiga managerial casualty of the campaign - with the winless club third from bottom with four points from eight games.

Pereira previously managed Deportivo Alaves and had spells as an assistant at a number of teams including Levante from 2011-13. He was last in charge of Chinese Super League side Henan Songshan Longmen.
