Georgia Announce Cuper As Coach

Georgia have announced that Hector Cuper is to be the new coach of their national team.

The Argentine will replace Klaus Toppmoller, who lost his job last April. Georgia failed to qualify for Euro 2008 and sought to revive their fortunes with a change at the helm.

Cuper will arrive in Tblisi next week, according to the Georgian Football Federation, who announced that the ex-Inter coach would sign a two year deal.

Georgia have been drawn in a tough World Cup 2010 qualifying group alongside Italy, Bulgaria, Ireland, Cyprus and Montenegro.

Cuper was most recently employed in Serie A with Parma, but he could not prevent the team being relegated to Serie B.

The 52-year-old was sacked before the end of the campaign after failing to turn the club’s fortunes.

Cuper has however, had success at club level in Spain. He was the coach of a Valencia side that progressed to two consecutive Champions League finals in 2000 and 2001, where they were beaten by Real Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively.
