Ljubomir Fejsa has renewed his contract with Benfica until June 2019, a one-year extension to his existing deal.

The Serbian arrived from Greek side Olympiacos in 2013 for just under €5m.

Fesja featured regularly under Jorge Jesus until a serious anterior cruciate ligament injury left him on the sidelines for nearly 10 months. He is now a vital player for Rui Vitória and constantly alternates with Andreas Samaris for the defensive midfield position.

In an interview with BTV, the 27-year old stated that he is looking forward to lifting another league title, something that he has done every year since his debut season at Partizan Belgrade.

"I am very happy to have signed a new contract and to continue at this club. Hopefully I can steer clear of any long-term injuries."

"In my first year at Benfica we were champions, again in the second, and now in the third... we are close."

"I have been a champion for 7 or 8 years consecutively [at Partizan, Olympiacos and Benfica], but I always look ahead and want to win more. I don't really know what it's like not being a champion, which is why I hope we do it again this season."
