Montpellier extends Girard's contract
Montpellier have confirmed coach Rene Girard has signed a two-year contract extension. The new deal will keep Girard, who took over the Ligue 1 side in June 2009, in charge of the club until 2013.

This term they currently sit in sixth place with 39 points and are also through to the Coupe de la Ligue final, where they will face Marseille.
