Brazil winger Maicon extends Roma deal

AFP, Monday 13 Oct 2014

 Brazilian veteran Maicon extended his contract with AS Roma by a year on Monday, with an extra year's option when his new deal expires in June 2016, the club announced.

The 33-year-old wing-back, who won the treble of Champions League, Serie A title and Italian Cup when he was with Inter Milan in 2010, joined Roma in 2013 after making just 10 appearances for Manchester City.

Maicon, who was a member of the Brazil side humiliated 7-1 by eventual champions Germany in their World Cup semi-final in July, has gone on to become a key player in Rudi Garcia's side.

He impressed as Roma finished runners-up to Juventus last season and also this term where their only defeat in six games came at the hands of the Italian champions in Turin.

A club statement said: "AS Roma is pleased to announce that Maicon Douglas Sisenando has signed a contract extension with the club. His new deal will run until June 30, 2016 and includes an option for a further season."
