Roman Weidenfeller: Signed a new deal until 2016

The 32-year-old, who is closing in on 300 appearances for the side he joined in 2002, has reaffirmed his commitment to the back-to-back Bundesliga champions by putting pen to paper on a new deal ahead of the Champions League final with Bayern Munich later this month.

"Transferring to another club had never crossed my mind," said Weidenfeller.

"What has grown here at Dortmund over the past few years is a uniquely positive football story which I want to play a big part in writing in the years to come.

"I am proud to be part of this strong-willed side which is a homogenous mixture of young and experienced players."

Weidenfeller has played 288 times in over a decade with the Westphalian club, coming into his own in their two recent title-winning seasons.

"We are really pleased that Roman has committed to us," said the club's director of sport Michael Zorc.

"He is an extraordinarily strong goalkeeper who has shown constantly top performances and made a major contribution to us winning the German titles in 2011 and 2012, as well as reaching the final of the Champions League this season."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

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.
