CSKA extends goalkeeper Akinfeev's contract through 2018-2019

Last week, CSKA Moscow head Roman Babaev extended goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev's contract through the end of the 2018-2019 season.

"It is a very important and joyful event for us," Babaev said. "The name Igor connected to all our major successes. I am sure that in the future with the help of the army, [the] team will achieve great victories. Besides, I want to add from myself that the contract signed anew with Akinfeev can be compared with the top-level transfer."

Akinfeev said he looks forward to staying on the team for another few years.

"Of course, we could not have big differences, because everything happened as it should be," Akinfeev said. "Life goes on, I continue to play CSKA Moscow and about anything else I do not dream."
