MADRID — Real Madrid says it has extended the contract of veteran left back Marcelo until June 2022.
The Brazilian's current contract was valid until June 2020.
The 29-year-old Marcelo has been with the Spanish club since the 2006-07 season. He has won 17 titles with Madrid, including three Champions Leagues and four Spanish leagues.
The Brazil international received a two-match suspension following a red card for a hard foul at the end of the league game against Levante on Saturday. Marcelo will miss Sunday's match at Real Sociedad and Wednesday's game against Real Betis.
