Michael Carrick will stay at Manchester United for at least one more season after signing a contract extension.
Carrick, who signed on at Old Trafford in 2006, is due to host his own testimonial there on June 4 but that won’t mean an end to his career.
The 35-year-old said he was delighted to continue on at the club following their Europa League triumph that confirmed Champions League status for next season.
He said: “What a fantastic way to finish off the season, with a new trophy in our cabinet. I am delighted that my journey with this great club is going to continue.
“My focus now is looking ahead to my testimonial match next Sunday; it will be a very proud moment for me and my family, and is the perfect way to top what has already been a great season.
“I am thrilled that the fans will also get to see our shiny new Europa League trophy on the day.”
Manager Jose Mourinho said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Michael over this past season.
“He is one of the true professionals of the game. Not only is he a great footballer, he is also a fantastic human being and a great role model to our younger members of the team.
“I am delighted he has extended his contract and I would like to take this opportunity to wish Michael all the best for his well-deserved testimonial match next Sunday.”
