David Albelda to be offered contract extension
If you asked anyone last season they would have told you this is effectively going to be Albelda's last season and Topal will take over the reigns, but with few less than stellar performances Topal has fallen back in the pecking order and Albelda has provided consistency in the defensive midfield role as always.
Unai Emery also spoke and said David Albelda deserves a contract extension due to his good performances and positive attitude.
Albelda has been a good example both on in games, training, on and off the field and also commands respect in the dressing room something certainly Emery wants to have.
