Villarreal refresh Rodríguez contract

The Argentinian international defender Gonzalo Rodríguez has extended his contract with Spanish side Villarreal CF until 2011.
Argentinian international defender Gonzalo Rodríguez has extended his contract with Spanish UEFA Champions League contenders Villarreal CF until 2011.

Interested parties
The 21-year-old's original deal was due to expire in 2009, but with reported interest from other clubs, Villarreal coach Manuel Luis Pellegrini was keen to tie his centre-half to a longer contract ahead of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Rangers FC.

Regular starter
Rodríguez joined Villarreal from CA San Lorenzo before the 2004/05 season and has proved a big success at El Madrigal, playing his 50th Primera División game last weekend. Such impressive form has earned him five international caps.
