Villarreal’s Cani extends contract until 2017
VILLARREAL, Spain (AP) — Villarreal says Ruben “Cani” Gracia has agreed to extend his contract for another three years, tying the Spanish midfielder to the club until June of 2017.
The 32-year-old Cani is second only to former player Marcos Senna in all-time appearances for Villarreal with 302 matches played.
Cani’s two goals and playmaking have helped Villarreal make a strong return to the topflight after one year in the second division. It is currently in fifth place.
Cani will miss Saturday’s Spanish league game at Barcelona due to a left knee sprain.
