Steve Mandanda signs new Marseille deal

Marseille goalkeeper and captain Steve Mandanda has signed a two-year contract extension, tying him to the club until 2016.

Steve Mandanda feels some criticism has been unfair
Steve Mandanda has made 200 Ligue 1 appearances

Mandanda, 27, was joined by his agent and family as well as club president Vincent Labrune and the club's director general Philippe Perez as he put pen to paper after Sunday's 3-0 home defeat to Lorient, his 200th Ligue 1 appearance.

Last season, he had said he would like to play in the Premier League, and was linked with moves to both Tottenham and Manchester United.

The Kinshasa-born France international initially joined Marseille on loan from Le Havre in 2007 as back-up to Cedric Carrasso but established himself as the club's number one when Carrasso was sidelined by injury.

Mandanda's displays earned him a permanent deal at the Stade Vélodrome in a €2.5 million move.
