Guillermo Barros Schelotto has signed a new deal with Columbus Crew which will see him play a fourth season with the club.
The 2008 MLS MVP and MLS Cup winnerâ€™s future at the club has been clouded with uncertainty ever since the end of last season but he has decided to sign on for another season in a major boost for the club.
Crew coach Robert Warzycha was delighted to have secured the former Argentina international after a drawn out process.
â€œIt was a long process, but we're very happy to be able to re-sign Guillermo for this season," Warzycha said.
"He's obviously been a very good player for this team and I'm glad we got him signed in time for the start of preseason camp."
The ex-Boca Juniors star has enjoyed a stellar three season for Crew, appearing 73 times for 24 goals.
