Gaizka Garitano has signed a new contract with Athletic Bilbao to 2021.
Garitano’s future is tied to Athletic Club until June 2021 after he and the Basque club reached an agreement over a one-year contract extension.
The 44-year-old’s current deal was set to come to an end this summer, but he has been rewarded for having led Athletic to the Copa del Rey final, which they will dispute against arch-rivals Real Sociedad when the opportunity allows, and for ensuring they push for a Europa League finish in LaLiga Santander.
Garitano has been in charge of Athletic since December 2018 and has overseen 61 games, winning 27, drawing 18 and losing 16.
Negotiations between Athletic and Garitano were fast and easy as both parties were on the same page
