Valencia manager Ruben Baraja confident of landing contract extension

Valencia are going in the right director under head coach Ruben Baraja. Since he took the reins in February 2023, Los Che have been on an upward trajectory, and they will probably fancy their chances of finishing inside the European places next season, especially if Baraja continues at the helm.

Valencia had been expected to finish in the lower-end of the La Liga table, but thanks to Baraja and his players, a very respectable ninth place ended up being their final position. There’s certainly scope for things looking good, and they would certainly improve if the 48-year-old signed a new contract.

Baraja’s current deal expires at the end of next season, although Diario AS have reported that talks are already underway over an extension. A contract until 2026 has been floated, which would include the option of an additional 12 months.

Both parties are confident that an agreement can be reached in the coming weeks. That would allow Valencia to put their full focus on the transfer window, where they will look to improve Baraja’s squad, while bringing in money that will help the club’s concerning financial situation.
