Flamengo head coach Jorge Jesus has extended his contract with the Brazilian side until at least 2021.
The 65-year-old took the helm of Flamengo last year and led the club to 3 trophies in 2019, winning the Brazilian Serie A, the Copa Libertadores and the Campeonato Carioca.
The former Benfica boss confirmed that his representatives agreed to a new deal on Tuesday.
Jesus wrote on Instagram:’’My representatives reached an agreement today with Flamengo board of directors to renew my contract for another year.
‘’My friendly relations with the entire squad, club structure and Flamengo’s fans were decisive to touch my heart and spoke louder in my decision.
‘’Thank you all for your kindness and support.’’
Jesus has led the club to win 41 games out of 55 since taking over the club in June 2019.
The Copa Libertadores success last year was the first one Flamengo won since 1981.
