No details yet and no formal press conference, but Sr. Roig confirmed that Fran Escriba will be our coach next season. Apparently his contract is being finalized and won’t be signed until June, so whether it is only for another season or will be for longer is not clear.

Villarreal go into their last match of the season in fifth place in the league, though (Athletic Club can say the same thing) if they had played better against Alaves, Leganés and Las Palmas, they would be fighting Sevilla for fourth.

More details as they emerge.
