Atletico reward Resino with new contract

MADRID - Atletico Madrid coach Abel Resino has agreed a one-year contract extension until the end of next season, the Primera Liga club said on their website on Friday.

The former Atletico goalkeeper stepped in to replace Javier Aguirre at the beginning of February as the side suffered a dip in form.

He was unable to prevent them going out of the Champions League to Porto in the first knockout round, but engineered a late surge to grab fourth place in the league and a slot in the Champions League play-off round.
