Barcelona B coach Francisco Javier García Pimienta is set to extend his stay with the club early next week by signing a new contract.

The coach’s current deal expires at the end of the month but he will put pen to paper on a new deal on Monday or Tuesday, according to reports.

The 45-year-old’s team have had a good season and are still in contention for promotion to Second Division A. Barca B were second in in the table when the league was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The RFEF subsequently decided to skip the rest of the campaign and go straight to play-offs to determine promotion. The games will be held in July in Andalusia.

Barcelona B have been drawn to play Real Valladolid Promesas in the first round of the play-offs.
