Borussia Mönchengladbach coach Andre Schubert has penned a two-year extension on the eve of the Foals' UEFA Champions League clash with FC Barcelona.

"Andre is doing great work," said Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl. "He lead the team into the Champions League [last season], and in 34 league games under his guidance we won 65 points. That is outstanding work."

Schubert succeeded Lucien Favre early last season with the club having lost their opening five games of the 2015/16 campaign. His initial deal ran until 2017, but his impressive record - which began with six wins and a draw in his first seven matches - has seen that stretched to 2019.

Gladbach are currently fourth in the Bundesliga after beating FC Ingolstadt 04 2-0 on Saturday. The North Rhine-Westphalian club will be hoping their domestic form spills into the Champions League against Barca, having lost their Group C opener 4-0 at Manchester City FC ten days ago.
