Atletico Madrid captain Gabi has signed a one-year contract extension which keeps him at the club until June 2018.
He has made 324 appearances for Atleti over two spells, split by four years at Real Zaragoza from 2007 to 2011. He has won the domestic league and cup and the Europa League with the club.
“It’s a great challenge to be able to be in the team when we move to the new stadium. A new and exciting stage starts for the club and being the captain of the first team in a moment that will go down in history is a source of pride for me,” Gabi said
“I am very happy to continue one more year at home. I always say that playing with Atletico Madrid was my childhood dream, so I cannot ask for more than what I am living these years. I also want to thank the fans for their unconditional support both for me and for the team.”
