Demichelis signs extension with Manchester City: “I will fight for this club”


Like it or not, Manchester City fans, Martin Demichelis isn’t going anywhere.

The 34-year-old defender penned a one-year contract extension that will keep him at the Etihad Stadium through the 2015/16 season.

Demichelis, who started his career with River Plate, Bayern Munich and Malaga, is a 44-times capped Argentina international who’s made 60 appearance for City since arriving in 2013.


“I want to say that I am really proud and happy to have extended my contract for another year.

“Manchester City is a club with a lot of ambition. We want to grow every year. When you get to hold a trophy, it’s the best feeling for any player.

“I want to say that I will fight for this club and for my teammates until the end of my contract. I will fight to try and win titles.”

City has played one more match than first-place Chelsea, and is five points back of the Premier League leaders. Barring an unlikely collapse — hey, we saw one yesterday vs. PSG — the trophies will have to wait for next season.
