Markarian appointed coach of Mexico's Cruz Azul

MEXICO CITY, June 9 (Reuters) - Former Paraguay World Cup coach Sergio Markarian has been named as trainer of Cruz Azul, the Mexican club said.

'Mr Sergio Markarian was appointed today as the new coach of the Cruz Azul team for the 2007 Apertura championship,' Friday's statement said.

The 62-year-old Uruguayan replaces Isaac Mizrahi, who left the club on Thursday by mutual agreement.

'The new trainer has a wide curriculum and vast experience, so we are confident his signing will lead to many sporting achievements,' the statement added.

Markarian steered Paraguay to the 2002 World Cup finals in Asia and won the Paraguayan league title with Olimpia, Sol de America and Cerro Porteno.

He also coached Peru's Universitario and Sporting Cristal, with whom he reached the Libertadores Cup final in 1997, and Ionikos and Panathinaikos in Greece.
