Carles Puyol: Extends Barcelona stay until 2016

Barcelona captain Carles Puyol has signed his contract extension with the Catalan giants.

Barca announced before Christmas that Puyol, along with Lionel Messi and Xavi, had committed their long-term futures to the club and 34-year-old defender has put pen to paper on a deal which ties him to the Nou Camp until June 2016.

The Spain international came up through the youth ranks at Barca before making his first-team debut during the 1999/00 season and then becoming club captain in 2004.

During his time at the Nou Camp, Puyol has helped Barca win a host of trophies, including five Primera Division titles, three Champions Leagues, two FIFA Club World Cups and two Copa del Rey crowns.

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
