Bilbao agree contract extension with Caparros

MADRID - Athletic Bilbao have agreed a one-year contract extension with coach Joaquin Caparros until the end of next season, the La Liga club said on Tuesday.

The former Sevilla and Deportivo La Coruna boss joined the Basque club in 2007 and led them to the King's Cup final last year where they lost to Barcelona.

They lie seventh in the standings this season, one point outside the Europa League qualification places.
