Álvaro Arbeloa is a happy man. Added to the joy of winning their second European Cup is perhaps the most awaited news for the Whites academy player: his contract extension of two years until 2016. The Whites’ defender does not hide his pleasure and gratefulness for the faith that the club has shown in him by extending his contract at the club where he played during his formative years: "I am more than happy. It is a pride and an honour for me to be a part of this club. To be able to extend my contract by two years, until 2016, is a source of absolute joy. I am delighted that the club has faith in me and l hope it continues".
