Bordeaux boss Blanc signs contract extension
Bordeaux coach Laurent Blanc has extended his contract by two years.
Blanc arrived at the Stade Chaban Delmas in 2007 and was an immediate success in his first managerial position, winning coach of the year at the end of the season.
The former Manchester United defender steered Bordeaux to second spot, pushing Lyon - who were in search of a seventh successive title - all the way in the closest Ligue 1 battle for several years.
Bordeaux confirmed the deal in a press conference, where they also announced assistant coach Jean-Louis Gasset had also signed a two-year extension.
