‘Bigger than Haaland’ – Man City fans share their delight as Scott Carson signs new deal
Manchester City have made the ‘signing of the summer’ according to the club’s fans – and they’re not even talking about Erling Haaland.
City fans were quick to share their reactions as it was confirmed that Scott Carson had signed a new deal with the club. The 36-year-old has extended his contract at the Etihad, keeping him with the Blues for another season.
“I’m delighted to be staying with City for another season,” Carson said. “To work with Pep [Guardiola], the coaches and such talented teammates is a real honour and one I relish every day.
“I have already gained so much from my time here and hopefully I can keep helping to push the club’s other goalkeepers to be the best they can be.”
The veteran goalkeeper joined City back in 2019 and remains their third-choice goalkeeper but is loved by supporters, many of whom revel in his impressive medal haul despite only playing twice over the past three years. And as Carson extends his stay with the club, fans shared their delight on social media.
On Carson’s extension, director of football Txiki Begiristain added: “Scott is an exemplary professional and his experience is of real benefit to the entire squad.
“His teammates, especially the goalkeepers, have great respect for his achievements in the game and his support has been a huge help to them. As he has demonstrated, we know he is always ready to play should he be called upon.”
