Manchester United's midfield general has extended his contract until summer 2015.
David Moyes was in full praise for his midfield general this morning when it was announced he had extended his contract until the summer of 2015, with an option of a further year.
''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, he is an exceptional man and a true professional.!
The news allowed people to think about Michael Carrick's time at the club, and what a truly magnificent career he has made for himself.
Since joining Manchester United in 2006, Carrick has only lost out in a title race by one point (to Chelsea in 2010) and goal difference (to Manchester City 2012)
He has won the Premier League 5 times, Champions League once, League Cup once and the FIFA Club World Cup and he doesn't want to leave it at that, stating:
''I have won many trophies in my years playing here, and I am looking forward to achieving more in the future''
There have been questions over whether the player will make the plane to Brazil in the summer, but for most people he is a dead certainty to make the final cut for the World Cup.
Manchester United fans took to the internet to celebrate the midfielders contract, and gave the unsung hero some well-deserve praise.
