Espanyol secure coach Pochettino to new contract

Espanyol have handed coach Mauricio Pochettino a new contract.

Pochettino has agreed a contract extension that ties him to the Primera Division club until June 2014.

The 38-year-old former Argentina and Espanyol player took charge of the Barcelona-based club in January 2009 with the team struggling in 18th place in the table, five points adrift of safety.

That season he helped Espanyol avoid the drop and finish in 10th spot, while last term he led them to an 11th-placed finish.
