Former Villarreal ace Senna signs NY Cosmos extension

Marcos Senna has signed a contract extension with New York Cosmos.

The former Villarreal midfielder has penned a new deal with the North American Soccer League champions after starring in 2013, winning the team's MVP award.

"I've had an incredible experience in New York so far," said 37-year old former Spain international Senna who has signed on until June 2015.

"Right now, my body feels great and I want to keep playing for as long as possible. This has been a fantastic move for my family and me and we're looking forward to another great year."

Of Senna, who also topped the Cosmos' scoring charts last season, head coach Giovanni Savarese added: "Marcos was a tremendous presence for us last year.

"His leadership helped the team come together and physically his skills are still at a very high level. We're delighted to have Marcos with us through the 2015 Spring Season and following that, both sides will sit down and discuss the feasibility of a further extension."
