Villarreal ties head coach Garrido until 2014

Villarreal has extended head coach Juan Carlos Garrido’s

contract until 2014.

The club is third in the Spanish league entering the 13th

round.

Garrido replaced Ernesto Valverde midway through last season and

led Villarreal to a 7th-place finish after it had spent five weeks

in the relegation zone.

Before taking over the first squad, Garrido coached Villarreal’s

”B” team for over four seasons, taking it from the fourth to the

second division.

Garrido’s contract was due to expire at the end of this

season.
