Rafael signs Verona extension

Serie A surprise package Verona have extended the contract of Brazilian goalkeeper Rafael.

The shot-stopper, full name Rafael de Andrade Bittencourt, has put pen to paper on new terms until June 2016.

Rafael was signed by the Stadio Bentegodi outfit in the summer of 2007, from Sao Bento, after their relegation to Serie C.

Rafael, 31, has played in all eight of the club’s League games so far this season.
