On Monday, the Portuguese defender known for his late heroics and stalwart defense signed a contract extension with Olympique de Marseille.

He was OM's savior by scoring the goal of qualifying in extra time at Salzburg in the UEFA Europa League. A few weeks later against Amiens at the Orange Velodrome on the final Matchday of Ligue 1 Conforama, he suffered an injury to his Achilles tendon. At 32, the injury is not insignificant but - neither is the memory of his goal.

Olympique de Marseille is not one to let down its players.

In full rehabilitation to recover, the native of Cape Verde extended his contract with the Club for a season, three years after his arrival at the Robert Louis-Dreyfus Centre. Jorge Rolando will be able to receive the best care during the long months of his recovery. He hopes to be back on the field by the end of 2018.

In three seasons in the Olympien shirt, Rolando played 110 games and scored 8 goals in all competitions.
