Moulin extends at Angers
Angers SCO have announced that coach Stéphane Moulin has signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him at the club - who are not yet sure of beating the drop in the current campaign - through to 2020.
Angers SCO currently sit in 17th place on the Ligue 1 Conforama table and, with just 28 points, they are still well shy of the 42 points reputed to guarantee safety from relegation. However, the club's directors have opted for a show of faith in coach Stéphane Moulin, signing him to a one-year extension that will keep him at the club through to June 2020.
The man for the job
Moulin has been at the helm of the club for seven seasons, bringing the club back to Ligue 1 in 2015 after 21 years outside France's top flight, and also served as reserve team coach for five years after his time as player in black and white between 1984 and 1990.
"In Europe's leagues, only Arsène Wenger has been in his current position longer than Moulin," the club stated in the communiqué announcing the extension, with club president Saïd Chabane underlining the commitment to Moulin. "Stéphane Moulin is the man for the job here and we want to continue achieveing great things with him here, starting with working together to secure our top-flight survival."
Moulin and Angers' next test comes in the form EA Guingamp's league visit to the Stade Raymond Kopa on Saturday night.
