Arsenal badgeGoalkeeper Manuel Almunia has signed a long-term extension to his contract at Arsenal.

The 30-year-old arrived from Celta Vigo 4 years ago and has become Arsene Wenger’s first choice this season, pushing Jens Lehmann onto the bench.

The length of the deal has not been revealed but the Spaniard told the club website that he would like to end his career at Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger I talked to my wife and I said I did not want to go back to Spain to play. Hopefully I can finish my career here.

I am very happy, I have extended my contract and I hope to be here for a long, long time.

Football can change your life in one second. At the start of the season, I was not playing. But football changed my life again and now I am one of the happiest men around.
