It had become an open secret in recent days.

Christophe Urios decided on Monday to extend his contract with the Union Bordeaux-Bègles.

The emblematic manager of UBB announced it this afternoon to its president, Laurent Marti, during a last meeting.

This is a two-year extension.

He is now linked to the club until June 2025, like a certain Matthieu Jalibert.

This is excellent news for the UBB as Christophe Urios has brought to the Bordeaux club since his arrival in 2019. The former manager of Oyonnax and Castres has now obtained exceptional results for two and a half years.

In his first season, he took the Union to the top of the Top 14 before the season was brought to a halt by the Covid-19 epidemic.

Last season, the club simply played three semi-finals, one in the league and two in the European Cup.

Finally, this season, UBB is currently the leader of the Top 14 after their victory against Toulouse a fortnight ago.
