Benaglio pens new Wolfsburg deal

Diego Benaglio has signed a new five-year contract with Wolfsburg, extending his stay at the club to almost to a decade.

The Switzerland No. 1 arrived in Wolfsburg in 2008 and he still had over a year left to run on his previous deal, but he said he did not hesitate to commit himself to a new deal which will keep him with the 2009 Bundesliga champions until 2017.

"It is a great feeling to know that I am still needed here and that the club is counting on me,'' Benaglio said. "Wolfsburg has become my home and I am very happy in the city and I think I am well looked after at this club.''

Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath is also delighted that he can rely on the Swiss shot-stopper in his ambitious plans to establish the club among Germany's elite.

"Diego Benaglio has achieved great things here, recently making a major contribution to us winning the German title,'' he said. "We are really pleased that he would like to be part of our sporting development in the future too.''
