Grimau signs Winterthur Barça extension

Sònia de Alba

Winterthur FC Barcelona have exercised their option to automatically renew Roger Grimau's contract for one more season.

The powerful guard is delighted with the faith that the club have shown in him and is the first player to have put pen to paper on a new for the 2007/08 campaign. "After the final game in the league, the club had ten to 15 days to decide whether to do the deal or not and they have done it," he said. "I am very pleased that it has gone through."

Confidence boost

"When I signed my contract four years ago and the club added the option of an extra year I thought then that if the day comes and they offered me an extension then it would be because everything had gone well for me," he continued. "I am thrilled to be continuing and did not want to even think about saying goodbye to the team."

A question of honours

Grimau joined Winterthur Barça at the start of the 2003/04 season from Caprabo Lleida and in his first year helped the club win the ACB League after an intense five-game final with Estudiantes. The following season (2004/05) Barça won the Super Cup in Málaga against Real Madrid and repeated the feat in February of this year when they beat Madrid again in Málaga.

Further talks required
Roger Grimau has signed a new one-year deal with Winterthur Barça, but talks could be set to take place that would keep him at the club even longer. "I would be delighted if that were possible," he stated.
