The captain will retire at the end of 2017/2018 season and reportedly is going to take a first team coaching role at United under Jose Mourinho.
The underrated ex-England midfielder was key in several title winning teams under Sir Alex Ferguson. I am sad to see him retire but glad that he’s staying at Manchester United.
Calm and composed is Carrick’s main attribute to boss United midfield for so long. Paul Ansorge over at Bleacher Report compile some of the new captain’s most important role at United games over the years into a very pleasant read.
I saw this happen when I heard news about Wayne Rooney was leaving the club. Michael Carrick is a United legend he totally deserved it, but shouldn’t a club captain is someone who plays week in week out?
I am not complaining though. Congratulations Captain Carrick!
Our very own Michael Carrick is getting a well-deserved testimonial this summer with Sir Alex Ferguson managing a side. Now I really wish I could be in Old Trafford that day.
We’re shite. But I still believe Jose Mourinho is the right person to turn things around. Moreover I agree he must able to answer these questions.
What puzzles me most is why Fellaini instead of Schneiderlin and Carrick?
We wouldn’t care if this happened 3 months ago. However, time has changed. Marouane Fellaini is definitely one of our stand out defensive performer so far.
I guess it’s a perfect time for Ander Herrera, Morgan Schneiderlin or Michael Carrick to show what they can do, step up and fight to fill the Belgian’s position.
