Bayern Munich's Mario
Gomez has extended his contract by three years to 2016 the day
after his club booked a place in the Champions League
semi-finals, the forward said on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old, who was Bundesliga top scorer last season
and jointly leads this season's charts with 23 goals, has been
in fine form, also netting 11 times in the Champions League.
"I have always said Bayern are a great club, I feel well
here and I see the best sporting prospects," Gomez said in a
Bayern, chasing a treble of domestic and European trophies,
beat Olympique Marseille 2-0 in their Champions League
quarter-final second leg on Tuesday to win 4-0 on aggregate.
Gomez became the most expensive transfer in Bundesliga
history when he joined Bayern in 2009 for what is still a record
sum of 35 million euros.
After a quiet first season, Gomez has firmly established
himself as the number one striker at Bayern and has also won a
regular starting spot for Germany.
"Mario Gomez has shown in the past years that he has become
one of the best scorers in Europe," Bayern sports director
Christian Nerlinger said. "We are happy that he will keep
scoring his goals for us."
