With the A-League finals looming, Adelaide United have received a huge boost with the news that coach Josep Gombau has extended his contract with the Reds to the 2016/17 season.
This is great news for Reds fans, who have seen Gombau turn their side into an exciting, attack-oriented team that can score regularly against any opposition.
It also means that, whatever happens on Saturday, the Reds can continue to build the game that has caught the eye of the entire A-League this season.
Gombau has won the heart of his fans with his passion for exciting, entertaining football.
He also seems to have won the hearts of his players, as well as the wider football community, with the Spaniard voted as the perfect choice to lead the A-League All Stars against Juventus at ANZ Stadium on August 10.
Gombau seems to be in for the long haul and has expressed his commitment to the work ahead to build the Reds into a premiership club.
In another boost for the club, defender Nigel Boogaard has also signed a contract extension that will seem him stay with the Reds for at least one more season.
The player voted Best Team Man in 2012 is an important asset for United and his re-signing, along with Gombauís, is significant for the stability of the club.
The Reds face-off against the Central Coast Mariners on Saturday in their Sudden Death Elimination Final in Gosford.
It is a tough assignment but the commitment shown by these two men will no doubt buoy the team and may just be a factor in United achieving something special.
