Michael Carrick has extended his Manchester United contract until June 2015, with the option of a further year, and has set his sights on winning more silverware.
The former Tottenham midfielder has won five Premier League titles since signing on at Old Trafford in 2006 and in the other two years United lost their crown by a point to Chelsea and on goal difference to Manchester City.
And with United back in the title race again after a slow start under new boss David Moyes, Carrick is looking forward to challenging for domestic and European titles in the future.
“The club has gone through a few changes and working under David Moyes has been fantastic,” he said.
“I have won many trophies in my years playing here and I am looking forward to achieving more in the future.”
The England midfielder, 32, is currently recovering from an operation to repair an Achilles injury he aggravated in the Premier League champions’ 1-0 win over Arsenal a fortnight ago.
He missed the two international friendly matches against Chile and Germany because of the injury, but his absence from Roy Hodgson’s squad may not have done his World Cup chances any harm as England slumped to two home defeats.
Moyes fully expects Hodgson to name Carrick as one of his final 23 players to go to Brazil in June.
He said: “England have had some top midfielders over the years and Michael fits into that category as well. I think he is recognised by people. I would be surprised if he wasn’t part of the England squad that went to the World Cup.”
