Spanish center-back Roberto Eslava on Tuesday signed a three-year contract extension with reigning I-League champion Chennai City FC.

Eslava joined the club last year and played a crucial part in Chennai City's maiden I-League title win during the 2018-19 season.

The 31-year-old scored two goals in 16 matches during the course of the season but missed the title-decider against Minerva Punjab in March, after he pulled his hamstring during the warm-ups. The injury also kept him out of the Super Cup where the club was eliminated in the semifinals.

Eslava shepherded his young centre-back partner Gaurav Bora, who stepped with a match-winning brace against Minerva in Coimbatore.
