Las Palmas have named reserves boss Manolo Márquez as their new first-team head coach in place of Quique Setién, who left the club at the end of the season.

The LaLiga outfit revealed in a statement on Monday that the 48-year-old has been handed the reins on a 12-month deal with an option for a second year.

Takes over after record-breaking year with Las Palmas Atlético

Márquez led the club's second team, Las Palmas Atlético, to promotion to Segunda División B last term, in a campaign that saw his side achieve the highest ever points total in Tercera División Group VII.

"Márquez knows this club down to the ground," said Las Palmas president Miguel Ángel Ramírez. "We're all very happy - we feel he is the best option."

"Coaching Las Palmas is a dream come true," Márquez told the club's website.
