FC Metz have confirmed that László Bölöni’s contract has been extended. The Romanian manager will remain with the Ligue 1 club until 2025.
Bölöni’s contract with the newly promoted side had been expected to expire at the end of the season. He orchestrated Metz’s return to Ligue 1 in his debut season with the club. This season, Metz have five points (one win, two draws, one loss), one of which came against Olympique de Marseille at the Vélodrome, despite Bölöni’s side being down to 10 men for much of the second half.
Bölöni, as well as the rest of his staff (Christophe Delmotte, Christophe Marichez, Florian Simon and Sébastien Roi), have now seen their contracts extended by a further season, as announced by the club on Thursday. Metz are currently 13th in Ligue 1 and would consider survival as a success this year. After the international break, the club will make the trip to face RC Lens.
