Brazil midfielder Ramires signs contract extension with Chelsea until 2019


Chelsea and Jose Mourinho have received a boost ahead of a potentially critical period, with Ramires signing a contract extension until June 2019.

The Brazil midfielder, who was linked with Juventus during the summer, has committed his future to the Blues, who are enduring a challenging season in defence of their Premier League title. Chelsea announced the deal on Thursday evening.

Mourinho, who in August signed a four-year contract committing himself to Stamford Bridge until June 2019, was subject to the first vote of confidence of Roman Abramovich’s 12-year ownership on October 5.

Since then, Chelsea have won one of their four matches – against a free-falling Aston Villa; the latest defeat was on penalties to Stoke in Tuesday night’s Capital One Cup tie – while Mourinho has faced disciplinary action from the Football Association.

The 52-year-old Portuguese had until 1800 on Thursday to respond to a misconduct charge following his half-time touchline dismissal at West Ham last Saturday.

Mourinho is already appealing a separate £50,000 fine and suspended one-match stadium ban for comments made after the October 3 loss to Southampton, a result which prompted the vote of confidence.

It is not expected either case will be heard before Saturday’s match with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
