Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has signed a contract extension at the club which will see him stay at Old Trafford until 2015, with an additional year available at the end of the deal.
The 32-year-old has become one of United’s most influential players in the centre of the park and was one of the main reasons behind their 20th title win last year.
Currently recovering from an ankle injury, Carrick will miss the next month or so, however he has admitted he is delighted to have signed a new deal at the club he loves.
“The club has gone through a few changes and working under David Moyes has been fantastic,” said the former West Ham United player.
“I have won many trophies in my years playing here and I am looking forward to achieving more in the future.”
Since arriving at Old Trafford, Carrick has won five Premier League titles, one Champions League, one League Cup and one Fifa Club World Cup.
His manager, David Moyes, also expressed his delight at the new deal.
“He is an exceptional man and a true professional,” Moyes said.
“I am delighted Michael has extended his contract.
“During my short time at the club it hasn’t been hard to notice that Michael is a great reader of the game and has excellent passing ability.”
