“Of course it has taken a little time but that’s absolutely OK and the best things are always worth waiting for anyway. Mo is one of the best players in the world; it’s only normal there are things to sort when you are at his level. So big credit to Julian Ward and Mike Gordon for guiding us to this destination.
“I have no doubt Mo’s best years are still to come. And that’s saying something because the first five seasons here have been the stuff of legend. Fitness-wise, he’s a machine – in the most incredible shape. He works hard on it and he gets his rewards. His ability and his skill level get higher each season, and his decision-making has gone to another level also.
“He is adored by his teammates. As coaches, we know we work with someone special. And the supporters have crowned him a king. So, very cool. “It is just great news. It makes me smile thinking about it. He stays with us for longer and it means we can achieve more together.”
