Real Sociedad coach Eusebio Sacristan agrees new contract until 2019

San Sebastian, Spain – Real Sociedad coach Eusebio Sacristan agreed to a contract extension with the Basque club.

Furthermore, Eusebio’s new deal ties him to the Basque club until June 30, 2019.

The 52-year-old succeeded David Moyes in November 2015 after four years in charge of Barcelona B.

Last year, he led Sociedad to a ninth-place finish in the top flight.

Eusebio had previously been linked with a return to Camp Nou as a possible replacement for Luis Enrique, although any chance of that move happening this year appear to have been dashed with the contract renewal.

The club are currently fifth with 41 points from 23 games — four points adrift of the Champions League places.
