Piraeus: Olympiakos captain Giannis Maniatis on Friday extended his contract with the Greek champions by two years despite being ruled out for four months with a knee injury.

The 28-year-old defensive midfielder`s contract had been due to expire in the summer of 2017 but that has now been stretched to 2019 by the current Super League leaders.

Maniatis injured his knee in Olympiakos` midweek Greek Cup quarter-final second leg win over AEK Athens which was abandoned in the 89th minute after a pitch invasion by AEK fans.

He will be out of action for four months, according to the club`s medical team.
