Xavi Pascual - FC Barcelona RegalFC Barcelona Regal reached a new agreement with head coach Xavi Pascual to extend his contract until the end of the 2014-15 season, the club announced Thursday. Pascual, age 40, was under contract until the end of the upcoming season but now added two more years under the new agreement. Pascual is the only Spanish coach to win the Turkish Airlines Euroleague title in the last three decades, when he led Barcelona to lift the trophy in 2010, downing Olympiacos 86-68 in Paris, France. He was promoted to Barcelona's head coach spot in February 2008, replacing his former boss Dusko Ivanovic, and guided the team to the Spanish League finals. His four full seasons with the club have been very successful, winning trophies every year. He has led Barcelona to win three Spanish League titles in 2009, 2011 and 2012, lifted the Spanish King's Cup trophy in 2010 and 2011 and above all, helped the club to win its second continental crown in 2010. A press conference to explain the new agreement has been scheduled on September 28, as Barcelona will fight for its fourth consecutive Spanish Supercup title in Zaragoza this weekend.
