The Club is delighted to announce the contract extensions of the Head Coach Rudi Garcia and the Sporting Director Andoni Zubizarreta
Having both joined a few days apart in October 2016, the two technicians continue their collaboration with OM until 2021, an extension of two years.
French Champion 2011 with Lille, Rudi Garcia had taken over from Frank Passi. For his first full season, he led the team to a Europa League final against Atlético de Madrid and reached fourth place in the Ligue 1 Conforama.
After two experiences at the helm of Athletic Bilbao (2001-2003) and FC Barcelona (2010-2015), Andoni Zubizarreta is also in for the long run. The former Spanish goalkeeper (126 caps) will continue his substantive work to ensure the development of the club on all floors. Assisted by Albert Valentin, the 57-year old Basque is at the centre of the restructuring of the OM formation. OM Campus, a state-of-the-art training tool, was inaugurated on October 14th.
