Dante, a center back for OGC Nice and a former member of the Brazil national team, has signed a one-year contract with Les Aiglons, the club has announced. Since joining Nice in 2016 from Wolfsburg, the captain has appeared in 243 games. The 2013 Champions League champion with Bayern Munich said, “Extending again is a great source of pride.” “I’m very appreciative as well. It’s also because my teammates push me every day. It makes me happy and compels me to consider how I can aid their advancement constantly.
Dante is a role model both on and off the field, according to Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivère, who also called his most recent contract extension an easy decision. “Having him here is a great blessing for us. We will always be there for him because he was always there for us. With Bayern Munich, Dante won two German cups and three league championships. The Brazilian center back played for Bayern, which in 2013 added the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup, and the Club World Cup to their domestic sweep, to complete the legendary sextuple. When his deal with Nice expires in 2024, Dante will be 40 years old.
