New Delhi: Afghanistan football captain Zohib Islam Amiri has extended his contract with Goan giants Dempo Sports Club for another year. After having a strong second half in the 2013/14 I-League season, where Amiri helped Dempo SC finish 4th, it was an easy decision for the defender to extend his stay at Dempo SC.“I am glad to stay here for another season, as I am enjoying my time here at Dempo SC. I definitely have improved as a player over the past 4 months under the guidance of Mr Papas and rest of the staff. I hope to build on from last season, and contribute towards the club picking up some silverware in the coming season”, said Amiri, who is a Libero sports client, after penning his contract extension. Dempo SC and its management kept faith in the Afghan skipper by offering him a new deal, as Amiri was an important member of their squad which saw the club turn around their season with impressive displays in the Federation Cup and the second half of the I-League.
