Kazuyoshi Miura, the world’s oldest professional footballer at 56, has extended his stay with Portuguese second-tier side Oliveirense.
The ex-Japan striker joined Oliveirense on loan in January from Yokohama and will continue with them on that basis for an undisclosed duration.
Miura has played just 28 minutes of football this year, spread over three substitute appearances.
Yokohama and Oliveirense have the same Japanese owners.
Miura was named man of the match on the final day of the Portuguese season after a 26-minute cameo in a 4-3 win over Leixoes. The opposition manager said the decision was “offensive” and turned it into a “circus”
