Chris Coleman: Bringing Real Sociedad To ER?

Hibs are thought to be on the verge of announcing another pre-season fixture at Easter Road in the coming weeks.

Fallen Spanish giants, Real Sociedad, are expected to arrive in the capital for a friendly, probably on Saturday July 21st.

Sociedad found themselves relegated from La Liga last season and sacked there manager, replacing him with Hibs boss John Collins' former team mate Chris Coleman.

Coleman took over Sociedad after leaving Fulham near the end of last season.

Hibs just returned from a trip to
Austria for the start of our pre-season training, culminating in our first pre-season game. Hibs lost 3-2 to local side SV Vocklabruck.

The Hibees face
Brechin City down at Glebe Park tonight, they then face Stirling Albion this coming Saturday at Forthbank. We then face English Premiership giants Bolton Wanderers on Wednesday July 25th at Easter Road.

This is then followed with another clash with a Premiership side the following Saturday, the Hibees facing
Middlesbrough at Easter Road on the 28th.

Quite exciting news if Hibs can pull it off.
