Montpellier have tied down veteran forward Souleymane Camara to a new contract to extend his stay at the Ligue 1 club to 13 seasons.
The 36-year-old Senegal international joined the club on an initial season-long loan from Nice in summer 2007 and then signed on a permanent basis 12 months later.
Camara has now made 409 appearances for Montpellier and scored 76 goals, helping the side win the Ligue 1 title in the 2011-12 campaign.
He has scored three goals so far this season, but was expected to leave the Stade de la Mosson when his contract expired in June. But Montpellier have opted to offer him another 12 months and Camara is delighted to be staying put. “It’s really nice to see that my adventure with Montpellier continues,” he told the club’s website. “I am very happy.
To always have the pleasure of doing this job, training, playing and bringing my all to the team. “With the president, it [an extension] was done naturally.
I felt a lot of confidence and I will continue to give my best to the team. “I thank the fans for the incredible support they give to the team. Personally, it gives me the courage and motivates me even more whenever I take to the field.”
