The manager of Barça B has extended his contract for what will be his third season in charge
As announced a week ago, today Thursday Eusebio Sacristán signed the renewal of his contract until June 30, 2014. Therefore, the Barça B coach and all of his assistants will remain in charge for the 2013/14 season, the third in total.
The contract was signed at the club offices at 13.30, and the event was also attended by president Sandro Rosell, vice president Josep Maria Bartomeu, director Jordi Mestre, director for the sports area Andoni Zubizarreta and Eusebio Sacristán’s own agent.
Eighth and ninth in 2A
In his first season, Eusebio led the team to eighth place (59 points), and this year Barça B finished ninth (57 points), meaning the team is nicely consolidated in the second tier of Spanish football.
This is the third of Eusebio Sacristán’s periods at FC Barcelona. Not only was he a member of the historic Dream Team but he was also assistant manager to Frank Rijkaard.
