Manager Fernando Vazquez has extended his contract with Deportivo for two seasons with a third option in case the Coruña team ascends to the Primera Division in the first or second attempt.
The Galician coach, who joined Deportivo last February, met this afternoon with team president Augusto Cesar Lendoiro, and both sides have reached a tentative agreement that will be finished in the next few hours, as acknowledged by the coach after his meeting with the leader of the club.
Deportivo, on its website, reported that “both parties came closer to an agreement to extend” the coach on the Galician team bench next season. “They only need to nail down some final administrative specifications, necessary at these times,” said the club.
The manager and president are scheduled to appear tomorrow before the media to present the agreement.
Vazquez, who went nearly six years without coaching, raised Deportivo in the second half of the season and managed to come alive up until the last day in which the team needed a win to be saved, but their defeat against Real Sociedad (0-1) and Celta de Vigo victory against Espanyol (1-0), sent them to La Liga Adelante.
The coach’s mission is to overcome the economic difficulties of the club and return to the First Division with great commitment.
