Madrid - Rayo Vallecano, second bottom in Spain's La Liga, appointed Paco Jemez as the club's new coach on Wednesday following the sacking of Michel.

Jemez returns for a second spell at Rayo, having spent four seasons in charge between 2012 and 2016, with the team six points from safety after a run of seven straight defeats.

The 48-year-old has signed a contract until June 2020 with Rayo, who were promoted back to the top flight last season after finishing top of the second division.

Rayo dismissed Michel on Monday following a 3-1 defeat by relegation rivals Villarreal.
