Celta coach Vazquez agrees contract extension

MADRID, May 13 (Reuters) - Celta Vigo coach Fernando Vazquez has been rewarded for leading the Primera Liga team into next season's UEFA Cup with a one-year contract extension until 2007.

'I am delighted to be continuing at the club and this contract gives me some stability,' Vazquez told a news conference on Friday.

'We have yet to define our objectives for next season but we are confident we can keep moving forward year on year and build on what we have achieved this season.

'Sevilla have done that and won the UEFA Cup this year, and we'll have to see if we can win it next year.'

Celta have been one of the surprise packages in the league and with one game left to play have already secured a place in Europe.

They are assured of sixth spot and play Getafe at home in their last game of the season on Saturday.

Club president Horacio Gomez said: 'Vazquez deserves this for getting us to where we are now. The extension is for a minimum of a year but we hope it will be for much longer.'

Vazquez, 51, joined the Galicians in 2004 and led them to promotion to the top flight in his first season.
