After a week when footballer’s wife Rebekah Vardy disclosed she’d booked a holiday in Ibiza because she thought “We were going there on an air bridge – how was I meant to know it wasn’t a real bridge?!” – Real Mallorca start their pre-season training at Son Bibiloni on Monday under a new management regime when 38-year-old Madrid-born Luis Garcia Plaza was appointed on Thursday night on a two-year contract. He has ample experience of coaching in Spain after being in charge of Levante (whom he won promotion with in 2009), Getafe and Villareal. The past few years have seen him coaching in the Middle and Far East where he had mixed fortunes. His prime objective now is to get Real Mallorca back where they belong in La Liga Santander.
