Michael Carrick to retire after this season

Michael Carrick to retire after this season

"So that's pretty much where I'm at, which is fine".

On the eve of Manchester United's UEFA Champions League Round of 16 second leg match against Sevilla, the 36-year old made the decision known when quizzed by journalists.

The veteran midfielder has played 463 times for United since joining from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006. During his glittering career with the Old Trafford club, Carrick has won five Premier League titles, a Champions League, FA Cup and a Europa League title.

He said that a move into coaching at United was "looking likely". "It's something that you have got to accept".

The English midfielder despite being benched for the majority of the season remained a go-to man for manager Jose Mourinho and is expected to join his backroom staff after hanging his boots in the summer. We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing totally confirmed as yet.

However, he has featured in just four games this season having had a procedure to treat an irregular heart rhythm detected in a League Cup game against Burton Albion in September.

I got back fit and I wanted to finish on my own terms really.

"But that quickly passed and I got back fit". I understood after getting back fit that I wouldn't be playing as many games as perhaps I might have done, but that's something that I understood.

"I've been training hard and we'll see what happens for the rest of the season". Tried to work for the team, being known as a team player I think is important.
