Manchester City goalkeeper Scott Carson has signed a new contract until June 2025

Scott Carson is set to extend his stay at Manchester City by signing a new one-year contract. A hugely popular member of Pep Guardiola’s squad, the 38-year-old acts as understudy to Ederson and Stefan Ortega.

Carson is seen as somebody who can push the pair of them in training and has become an integral member of the dressing room across his five years at the Etihad Stadium. The veteran has featured twice under Guardiola – the first a 4-3 victory at Newcastle in 2021 and the second a 17-minute appearance from the bench in the Champions League against Sporting.

Carson’s influence goes beyond that, forging close relationships with Ederson and Ortega, who have both spoken glowingly about the former England stopper. Guardiola has told players that they are better off absorbing wisdom from Carson than their manager, likening him to ‘an old actor’.

And it’s a role that Carson takes seriously. ‘I’m the third-choice goalkeeper, I think it’s half of my job role to help the lads if they need anything,’ he has said. The other two lads are playing a lot more games than me and could be called upon at any time so if they want me to do a bit of shooting or crossing I am there to help them. If that means I’m there longer, it’s not a massive thing to do. That’s part of my role to be there to do that.’
