Mendilibar to remain at Osasuna

AS reports that Osasuna boss Jose Luis Mendilibar is set to continue at the club next season.

Although there has been no official announcement from the Pamplona-based outfit, everything suggests he will be at El Sadar for the start of the 2012-13 campaign as it is understood his contract specifies it will be automatically renewed for a further 12 months in the event he avoids relegation.

Mendilibar dined with President Miguel Archanco and directors Jose Luis Roldan and Chuma Peralta on Monday, and despite a lack of statements it is assumed that an agreement had been reached for his continuation.

It is a situation that may not be well received by the Osasuna faithful, who in recent surveys conducted by various media publications made it clear they would like a new man to sit on the bench next term.
