Antonio Valencia Extends Contract At Man United

Antonio Valencia has extended his Manchester United contract until 2019.
Fresh off of the Europa League final win, Manchester United gave their supporters more good news today.

According to the English club, Antonio Valencia has extended his contract, keeping him at the club until 2019.
 Antonio Valencia told the club's official website: "Manchester United has been my life since 2009 and I am absolutely delighted to have signed a new contract. 

"Wednesday evening provided the one trophy this club had never won and it was a true honour for me to captain the team for the final. 

"I would like to thank the Manager for the confidence he has given me this season and I am sure that we will be challenging on all fronts next season. I would also like to say a big thank you to my family, my team-mates and, of course, the fans, for their amazing support."

Coach Jose Mourinho added:  "It is no secret that I had been an admirer of Antonio’s long before I joined the club. I knew what a fantastic player he was and he has not disappointed me on that front. 

"However, what I could never have imagined was what a great person he is. I know I have said this before but I truly believe it is a real privilege for us to have such a good player and such a good man. I am delighted he has extended his contract."
The Ecuadorian was a key member of the squad this year and captained the Red Devils against Ajax in the Europa League Final.

Valencia signed in 2009 from Wigan Athletic by Sir Alex Ferguson as a pacey and direct right winger.

In the past couple of seasons, Valencia has featured predominantly as a right full-back.

His hard work was rewarded by a 2-year contract extension with the option to extend a year further.
