New Malaga boss Juande Ramos during his spell with Dnipro.

Malaga has confirmed the appointment of Juande Ramos as the club's new coach.

Ramos, who managed the Andalusian club during the 2003-4 campaign, returns for a second spell having been out of work following his departure from Dnipro at the conclusion of the 2013-14 Ukrainian season. The 61-year-old replaces Rubin Kazan-bound Javi Gracia at La Rosaleda having signed a three-year deal.

The highlight of Ramos' first stint in charge was a 5-1 thrashing of Frank Rijkaard's Barcelona.  Since then he has enjoyed spells at Sevilla, with whom he claimed back-to-back Europa League titles, Tottenham, Real Madrid and CSKA Moscow.
