Rafinha: Bayern Munich defender signs new contract

Bayern Munich right-back Rafinha has signed a one-year contract extension with the Bundesliga champions.

His deal was set to expire at the end of the season.

The 31-year-old Brazilian has been with the club since a 2011 move from Genoa, and has made 186 appearances, scoring four times.

He said: "I have been here almost six years now. Bayern is like a second family to me and one of the best clubs in the world."
