John O’Shea has signed a contract extension that will keep him at Manchester United until 2012.

The 26-year-old Irishman scored two, vitally important goals in Liverpool last season: the winner at Anfield and our first in a thrilling comeback at Everton’s home. He played a big part as a utility man and Sir Alex Ferguson definitely continues to trust him.

‘John has developed in his years here and is now regarded as one of the more experienced players,’ the boss said.

‘He has proved through his personality and professionalism he is an outstanding credit to the club and I am delighted he has signed a new contract.’

It is obvious that O’Shea has no desire at all to join another club where he might get more opportunities. He’s happy at Old Trafford, as happy as one can be.

‘I am extending my contract with the champions. I have been at the club since the age of 17 and it is a dream come true to play for such a great club,’ he said.

‘I hope to play my part in bringing more trophies to the club and to continuing the success with this young, exciting team.

‘I would like to thank the boss, the staff and the fans for their continued support.’


Oh, it was nothing, Johnny. Keep up the good job.
