Fletcher honoured to be at Man Utd

The 24-year-old signed a three-year extension this his contract with Manchester United on Friday.

“It is a great honour to sign a new contract,” he said.

“This is a fantastic club, the best in the world, and there is no place I would rather be.

“I know I did not start as many games as I would have liked last season but the manager thinks highly of me and I will keeping pushing for a run in the team.”

He continued: “I am really enjoying myself at the moment.

“There are a lot of midfielders at the club and I found games hard to come by last season.

“I picked up a few injuries at the wrong time and the form of Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick and Anderson meant it was hard to get into that midfield.

“But this season there have been injuries and disruptions. I have been given a chance and once you get a run in the team you tend to improve.”
