Rivaldo extends Greek stay

Brazilian midfielder Rivaldo will finish his career at Greek club Olympiakos Piraeus.

The 35-year-old player said he changed his mind about leaving Greece this summer, and will stay for another season and retire in June 2008.

"I'm very happy here, so is my family," Rivaldo told state-run NET television. "I'm very fond of Olympiakos and it would be delighted to end my career in Piraeus."

Rivaldo, who starred in Brazil's run to the 2002 World Cup title, joined Olympiakos in 2004. He helped the Piraeus club win the 2005 and 2006 Greek league and Cup trophies, reports AP.

He is currently tied with Dimitris Salpingidis of Panathinaikos for the league scoring lead with 13 goals.

After 22 rounds in the 16-team league, Olympiakos leads the standings with 56 points, 11 ahead of Panathinaikos.
