CHERUNDOLO TO RETURN TO HANNOVER
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Steve Cherundolo's long tenure at Hannover will continue at least for another year as the American international is set to sign a new deal with the club

Cherundolo, 34, has not officially signed but deal is close and there is an understanding between both parties.

"Stevie hadnīt sign the new contract until yet," Hannover spokesman Alex Jacob told YA on Tuesday. "But itīs clear that he will play in the next season for Hannover 96, too. The new contract is about one year - until the 30th of June 2014."

Cherundolo has been with the club since leaving the University of Portland in 1999 and he has been the club's captain since 2010. Last weekend he set a club record of 299 Bundesliga appearances. He is likely to play his 300th this weekend in Hannover's season finale against Fortuna Dusseldorf.

His time at Hannover has also coincided with his international success as he has earned 87 caps for the US national team and has been on the roster for the 2002, 2006, and 2010 World Cup teams.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
