Real Valladolid manager Sergio González has signed a contract extension at the club that will see him stay until June 2020.
The 41-year-old was appointed as head coach in April 2018 while the Valladolid were still in the Spanish second division.
It was Sergio’s first managerial position in over two years since Espanyol, and he won eight of his first 12 matches at Valladolid, leading the club to fifth place in the league table.
The Blanquivioletas then won promotion in the playoffs, which led Sergio to sign a new deal until the end of the 2018/19 season.
Now, however, the new Real Valladolid president Ronaldo Nazario has sanctioned a further year onto Sergio’s existing contract at the Estadio José Zorrilla.
It was only earlier this month that Ronaldo took over as the club president with his 51% majority shareholder stake. It appears that he is ready to make his mark on Pucela.
Sergio has won eight and drawn four of his 16 games in charge of Valladolid so far.
With the future of their manager resolved, Real Valladolid will now turn their focus back to La Liga ahead of Saturday’s trip to Celta Vigo.
The Blanquivioletas are still yet to pick up a single win since their return to the Spanish top-flight. Last weekend they lost 0-1 to visitors Alaves, and now they lie 19th in the league table with two points.
