Canadian-born defender Alain Rochat has signed a new three-year contract at FC Zürich, binding him to the Swiss champions until the summer of 2011.

One cap
The 24-year-old, capped once by Switzerland, joined Zürich in the summer of 2006 after a spell in France with Stade Rennais FC and played in 17 games last season as his side won the Swiss title. The former FC Yverdon-Sports and BSC Young Boys player impressed Zürich sporting director Fredy Bickel, who said Rochat has "shown during the build-up to the new season that he is a very important player with international experience". Zürich will start their UEFA Champions League campaign in the third qualifying round next month.
