April 25, 2006

MILAN, April 25 (Reuters) - Brazil captain Cafu has extended his contract with AC Milan for a further year signing up until June 30, 2007, the Serie A club said.

Cafu's current deal with Milan was due to run out at the end of this season and there had been reports that he was considering a return to Brazil.

The 35-year-old attacking right-back joined Milan in 2003 after spending six seasons with AS Roma and won the Italian title in his first season at the San Siro.

Milan face Barcelona in their Champions League semi-final, second leg in Spain on Wednesday trailing 1-0 from the opening game.
