Former Arsenal and Bordeaux boss Pedro Martinez Losa has been appointed as Scotland Women’s new manager.

Martinez Losa has signed a three-year contract with the Scottish FA and will officially begin his new role on August 1.

The 45-year-old Spaniard replaces Shelley Kerr, who left her role as Scotland boss in December 2020.

He told the Scottish FA’s website: “It has been a long-held ambition of mine to coach a women’s national team so today represents a tremendous honour for me as I take charge of Scotland.

“I have admired from afar in recent years, watching a talented group of players take their nation to two back-to-back major championships and it’s now my job to ensure the team return to that stage.

“Scotland have an abundance of international talent alongside a well-balanced mix of youth and experience throughout the squad, which was one of the main aspects which attracted me to the job.

“I want to achieve success on the pitch to inspire the next generation of female players in this country. I understand women’s football is growing rapidly in Scotland and I want to spearhead that with victories on the pitch.”
