Cacau: Has extended his stay at Stuttgart

The 31-year-old tore cruciate knee ligaments in October and needed further surgery recently, ruling him out for a further few months, but he hopes to return for the start of next season stronger than ever.

"Stuttgart has been my home for almost a decade and I have celebrated huge sporting successes and fantastic moments here," he said.

"My first goal is to get fit again as quickly as possible to be able to give it my very best next season."

Cacau joined Stuttgart from Nurnberg in 2003 and has played a total of 242 times for the club.

"Cacau will be going into his 11th season with Stuttgart in the summer and that is an incredibly long time in the football world," said the club's director of sport Fredi Bobic on their website.

"He will be able to help us further with all of his experience, so we're pleased to be able to plan with him also for the coming season."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
