Udinese reward Spalletti

UEFA Cup contenders Udinese Calcio have extended coach Luciano Spalletti's contract until 2006.

Sixth spot
The 44-year-old earned Udinese a UEFA Cup place by guiding them to a sixth-placed finish in Serie A last term. "I want to thank the club's directors for their trust in me and repay their confidence in the best possible way," he said.

Double promotion
Spalletti endured a brief and less successful spell at the Friuli stadium in 2000/01 having made his name at Empoli FC, taking the club up two divisions to Serie A between 1995 and 1997.
