FC Seoul announced Wednesday they have signed veteran midfielder Osmar to a two-year extension.
The 33-year-old from Spain has spent seven seasons with the Seoul-based K League club.
In 280 career matches, Osmar has collected 22 goals and 12 assists.
In 2015, Osmar became the first foreign-born outfield player to play full time in every match of a season. The following season, he was named club captain, the first non-Korean player to wear the armband.
Long known for being a steady on-field general with passing skills, Osmar also made some cameo appearances as a center back in the latter part of the 2021 season.
FC Seoul finished seventh among 12 clubs in the K League 1 this year, thanks to a late push under new head coach An Ik-soo after toiling in last place with his predecessor, Park Jin-sub, in charge. (Yonhap)
