Manchester United manager Casey Stoney has extended her contract to keep her at the club until at least 2022.

The former Arsenal, Chelsea and England player became the head coach at the newly-founded club in June 2018.

And in the team's inaugural season she led them to promotion from the FA Women's Championship into the Women's Super League.

Speaking after her contract extension, Stoney said: "I am extremely proud to be involved with Manchester United and I’m honoured to be head coach of such an incredibly hard-working and talented team. 

"I’d like to thank the club for the fantastic support they have given me since we started this journey and for the trust in what we are building here."

Meanwhile, vice-chairman Ed Woodward added: "I am delighted that Casey has committed her future to the club. What she has achieved already in such a short space of time has been hugely impressive.

"Building a team from scratch and gaining promotion to the Women’s Super League at the first attempt was outstanding."
