Sporting CP extends Nikcevic deal
Alvalade handball star overjoyed with contract extension
"It is an honour to be able to use this shirt for another season, after such a great year", said Ivan Nikcevic, just minutes after penning a contract extension on the back of a season which saw Sporting CP lift a long-awaited national league title in addition to the Challenge Cup.
For Nikcevic, this is the perfect time to be at Sporting CP, particularly with new a new arena just about to open: "The first time I visited the club's museum I felt a huge drive to get my name on the wall in there too. With the help of the fans and the team I have done that and I am really happy. This was a really special season for the fans. I know how much they wanted the national title. I am really looking forward to playing in the João Rocha Arena in front of thousands of fans and thanks to the club and president Bruno de Carvalho I will have that experience."
