After enjoying great success in his first campaign in charge, including leading Los Rojiblancos to the final of the Copa de la Reina and to the top of the league with just three games remaining, Vera will remain as manager for the foreseeable future.

Speaking after signing his new contract, he said (as quoted by the ​club’s official website): “Being in the place that they love you, they value you and respect you is always the best reward no longer for a professional but for a person. 

“I feel very loved in this club, in my club, in my house and with my people. I am the happiest and luckiest person in the world.”

He added: “We are living a very beautiful situation and we reached the end of the season with options in the League and the Queen’s Cup. 

“I am very proud that we have managed to have a clear and marked identity in the game. We are very excited with everything that comes to us now.”
