Frank Rijkaard has agreed an extension to his contract with Barcelona.

Rijkaard’s current deal was due to expire in 2007 and Barca were keen to prolong his stay following last season’s success.

The former coach of the Dutch national team has signed a two-year extension to keep him at Camp Nou until 2009.

Rijkaard took charge at Camp Nou in the summer of 2003 and guided Barca to their first title success in six years.
