Juanfran extends Atlético agreement

With the start of their Group G campaign looming, defender Juanfran has extended his contract with Club Atlético de Madrid until 2017 after two successful campaigns.

Club Atlético de Madrid have announced that full back Juanfran has signed a new contract with the club until June 2017.

A regular starter for Diego Simeone’s side, the 28-year-old came through Real Madrid CF’s academy, arriving at Atlético from CA Osasuna in winter 2011/12. Since then, he has made 79 league appearances for Los Colchoneros, scoring twice.

At Atlético he has won the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League, the 2012 UEFA Super Cup and last season’s Copa del Rey. He won his first Spain cap in a friendly game against Serbia in May 2012 and was an unused member of their UEFA EURO 2012 squad.

Atlético meet FC Zenit in their first UEFA Champions League Group G game on Wednesday.
