Espanyol renews coach Valverde's contract

Espanyol extended the contract of coach Ernesto Valverde by two years Thursday, tying him to the club until 2009.
Valverde, who took charge last May, has led Espanyol to 10th place in the 20-team Spanish league at the halfway stage of the season. The team has also reached the last 32 of the UEFA Cup, where it meets Livorno next month.
Valverde's only previous coaching experience in the Spanish first division was with Athletic Bilbao, which he led from 2003-05 before resigning.
The 42-year-old Valverde played for Espanyol from 1986-88.
