Michael Carrick Announces Retirement From Football

Michael Carrick

Speaking at a news conference on Monday, veteran Red Devils midfielder Carrick said: "Scott doesn't seem too interested in all the glitz and the glamour that can surround young players these days".

Michael Carrick has confirmed he will retire from football at the end of the season and is likely to join José Mourinho's coaching staff at Manchester United.

United sealed a 2-1 win over their arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford in the Premier League clash on Saturday. That's pretty much where I'm at.

The classy playmaker arrived at the club from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2006 and was awarded a testimonial previous year, in recognition of his magnificent service to the Reds.

"We keep producing them as a club and that is incredible in this day and age when there is so much scrutiny and money and people are clamouring to sign this player and that player", he said. As such, he's likely to take on a coaching role from next season - discussions are ongoing but "it's been kind of sorted out". "That's where I'm at and you have got to accept it".

Carrick has seen his playing time this season limited after having gone minor surgery to correct an irregular heart rhythm. We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing totally confirmed as yet.

McTominay's impressive form in his early games earned him his first call-up by Scotland yesterday as well as a significant nod of approval from Old Trafford's elder statesman ahead of tonight's Champions League last-16 second leg against Sevilla.

"So, I was determined to get 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 still see myself as a player - for now anyway - and I am still enjoying training and being out with the boys".

"In terms of being remembered, just someone who tried to do things the right way..."

In his prime, he was good enough to play for Manchester United in that deep-lying central midfield role, but he's always been one of their lesser players.
