Botev joins Marinov after Cota no-show

SOFIA, Jan 20 (Reuters) - Struggling Bulgarian club Botev Plovdiv have appointed Atanas Marinov as coach after Italian Corrado Cota failed to turn up for the second half of the season, the club said on Friday.

Cota, who reportedly had agreed terms with the club to take charge after the winter break, went home to Italy before New Year but has not come back and training is already underway.

'We cannot wait for him any longer. Cota's behaviour is disrespectful to our club. Marinov has 10 years' experience as a coach in Malta and we are happy to have someone like him,' said club director Kostadin Kostadinov.

The 47-year-old Marinov signed a five-month contract which could be extended if Botev avoid relegation. The team are 11th in the premier league standings with 12 points from 14 matches, only three points above the relegation zone.
