The crowd goes into celebration as RCD Espanyol win 2-0 against Real Sociedad to secure Europa league football next season. Espanyol finished the season going nine games unbeaten to climb the table and claim the 7th spot.
Above the field the Espanyol owner, Chen Yansheng, watches the players celebrate with manager Rubi. The manager who will be leaving the club for Real Betis in one weeks time. Rubi led Espanyol to European competition but received a higher wage package from Real Betis and has decided to move on.
Next to Chen in the owners box is Maxi Luis, a 42 year old former football player who will be named the teams next manager as soon as Rubi leaves.
This is the story of Maxi Luis and the start of his career as a manager. I will be asking for your input on Maxi's future and choices to make. But first we start with Barcelona's other team, RCD Espanyol.
