Xerez have confirmed that former River Plate boss Nestor Gorosito has been appointed as the club's new coach.
Xerez have been managerless for the past week after sacking Jose Angel Ziganda following a miserable start to their first-ever Primera Division campaign which left them bottom of the table with just seven points and seven goals from 17 games.
They picked up another point at fellow strugglers Real Zaragoza at the weekend but are now nine points off safety.
Gorosito becomes Xerez's third coach in less than a year, Esteban Vigo having left the club in the summer soon after leading them to the Segunda Division title.
The former Argentina international has had spells in charge of River Plate, Argentinos Juniors and Rosario Central during an eight year managerial career.
Gorosito's only European stint was the three years he spent as a player at FC Swarovski Tirol in Austria. The 45-year-old took his first training session on Tuesday and will be officially presented on Wedensday.
