He led Atletico to the 2010 Europa League final triumph over Fulham FC, as well as the final of the Copa del Rey same year, where they lost to Sevilla FC.

Sanchez arrives from Dubai club Al Ain and succeeds Romanian Cosmin Contra, who resigned from his position at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez on Sunday to replace Sven-Goran Eriksson at Guangzhou R&F FC, leaving the club in 14th place and just four points above the relegation zone.
