No Byung-jun extends Pohang deal

SEOUL - South Korean No Byung-jun has renewed his contract with Asian champions Pohang Steelers for another two years, the Asian Football Council said on its website on Tuesday.

The experienced striker was adjudged the Most Valuable Player when the K-League club beat Saudi Arabia's Al Ittihad 2-1 in the Asian Champions League final last year.

"Due to the heavy schedule including the AFC Champions League, Korea League and Korea Cup, we wanted him to stay with us," the club said in a statement.
