SAO PAULO, Brazil -- Ronaldinho will play another season with Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro.

The club said Wednesday it has extended Ronaldinho's contract until the end of 2013.

The former two-time world player signed with Atletico Mineiro in June and was key in keeping the club in contention for the Brazilian league title until the final rounds.

The 32-year-old Ronaldinho played 31 matches with Atletico, scoring nine goals.

The former Brazil star says he is staying because he is "going through a wonderful moment at the club" and has been "treated very well" by everyone, "especially the fans," since arriving after a controversial stint with Flamengo.

Atletico still has a chance to finish second in this year's Brazilian league, a competition it hasn't won since 1971.
