Osasuna next manager after Jagoba Arrasate
Who is CA Osasuna manager Jagoba Arrasate?
Jagoba Arrasate is the current CA Osasuna manager after taking over in June 2018. Arrasate was born on 22 April 1978 in Berriatua. He previously played football as a forward for Spanish clubs such as Beasain, Lemona and Eibar’s reserve team but failed to make it professionally.
Arrasate started his playing career in the Eibar reserve team in 1997, he played for the club for 4 years but never broke into the first team. In 2001, he decided to join Lemona before moving on in 2002 to join Beasain. He moved on again in the following year to join Elgoibar where he spent 2 seasons at the club until moving to Portugalete in 2005. He only made 10 competitive appearances for the club and scored 1 goal before joining Amorebieta in 2006.
After retiring in 2007, Jagoba Arrasate joined Berriatuko as their permanent manager where he lasted a season before joining Elgoibar. In 2010, Arrasate joined Real Sociedad as a youth team manager where he worked in the role for 2 years. In 2012, he was appointed as the club’s assistant manager to Philippe Montanier before being made permanent manager in 2013. In his lone season as first team manager, Arrasate beat Olympique Lyonnais in the 2013-14 Champions League group stages, however, finished bottom of the group. He also won the La Liga manager of the month award for December 2013. After a poor run of results, Arrasate was sacked in November 2014 as he went on to join CD Numancia in June 2015. In his 3 years at the club, he guided the club to the playoffs but failed to gain promotion before stepping down as manager in June 2018.
In June 2018, Osasuna appointed Jagoba Arrasate as their new permanent manager on a one year contract. In his opening season at the club, Arrasate won the Segunda División and secured the club’s place in next year’s La Liga. The club has spent £10m in this transfer window bringing in the likes of Ruben Garcia and Marc Cardona which will help them in their 2019-20 campaign. Next season, Arrasate will be desperate to keep the club in La Liga whatever the cost but he’s likely to be stuck in a relegation battle in the closing weeks of next season’s campaign.
