Imanol Alguacil has signed a new deal with Real Sociedad to 2021.
His previous deal, which renewed automatically year by year, was set to expire in June 2020, but the club have now shown their faith in Imanol's project.
The Basque coach was expected to see his deal extended in April, when the automatic extension clause could have been activated.
Instead, La Real have instead acted to bring the decision forward, removing this automatic renewal clause from the new agreement which also rewards Imanol with a pay rise.
"I'm very happy with the extension of the contract," Imanol told the club's official media channels.
"Seeing the trust of the club and the love from the people makes me feel respected and valued."
