Automatic contract extension for Barça Women coach Lluís Cortés
The women's team boss at FC Barcelona will continue in the job for another season after claiming the league title
After claiming the league title this season, FC Barcelona have triggered the automatic extension clause in Barça Women coach Lluís Cortés' contract which prolongs his tenure for another season until 30 June 2021. The contract signature will take place in the presence of director Xavier Vilajoana when the current health situation allows.
The 33 year old Catalan coach took over in January of 2019, replacing Fran Sánchez to whom Cortés had been assistant. In his first season in charge he guided the team to the Champions League final in Budapest, Hungary. The following campaign the team won the league title, the Spanish Super Cup and the Copa Catalana.
With Lluís Cortés as coach, the women's team have played 52 matches, winning 46, drawing two and losing four, scoring 181 goals and conceding just 27.
Lluís Cortés' reaction to contract extension
"I am really happy to be sharing this magnificent news that we will continue leading this project. It has an unusual year, a little strange but packed with success. We have managed to win the three competitions we have taken part in and we hope to continue the success next season."
