Villarreal CF's Argentinian defender Rodolfo Martín Arruabarrena has signed a new contract which could keep him at the Primera División club until June 2007.
'Doing the business'
Arruabarrena, 27, agreed to extend his original contract by two seasons after talks with club officials. "The fact they offered me a new deal shows that I have been doing the business on the pitch, although it is also true that I have settled into the club off the pitch as well," he said.
'Very important player'
"I hadn't been expecting it, but I am happy that the club still have faith in me because I am enjoying it here," added Arruabarrena. The left-back has started 32 games for mid-table Villarreal this season, and club director José Manuel Llaneza said: "It was very important to sort out a new contract for him. He is a very important player for the club."
A former Argentinian international, Arruabarrena could be granted Spanish citizenship this summer. He previously played for CA Boca Juniors in his native Buenos Aires.
