Manchester United captain Michael Carrick to retire at end of season

12 March 2018

Michael Carrick will not play for Manchester United after this season.

Unite manager Jose Mourinho has said he would be keen to add Carrick to his first-team coaching staff and the former England worldwide admits there is a good chance he could be on the bench from next season.

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick has officially confirmed that he will not play for Manchester United beyond this season.

He has been restricted to only four appearances this season because of an irregular heart rhythm.

"There comes a time when your body tells you stop playing football and that's pretty much where I am at now", said Carrick.

"It's fine, it's something you've got to accept so that is where I'm at".

It's kind of been sorted out. "That is where I am at", said the midfielder.

"I'm clear now, it took a bit of time to get over".

On his heart problem, he added: "It started in the Burton game and then happened again in training".

"I need to keep myself fit and ready".

During his time at Old Trafford he has won a whole host of major honours including five Premier League titles, the FA Cup, three League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League while in 2013 he was named the club's Player of the Season. "I am trying to help a lot more because I understand where I am at".

During his tenure at United the Newcastle-born midfielder has scored 24 goals and has already been given a testimonial by the club, which took place last June.
