BASEL, Switzerland (AP) - Basel has signed former Champions League-winning defender Walter Samuel on a one-year contract.

The 36-year-old Argentina international was a free agent after his nine-year spell at Inter Milan ended last season.

Samuel helped Inter to become European champion in 2010.

Basel has direct entry to the Champions League group stage this season after winning the Swiss title for a fifth straight year.

Basel president Bernhard Heusler said Samuel is “a very experienced player and, at the same time, a great personality.”
