After captaining United in their 1-0 victory over Watford at Old Trafford on Sunday, the former England global has now called time on his playing career.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has paid tribute to Michael Carrick after the retiring captain played his last game for the club against Watford on Sunday.

Carrick - signed for £18m from Tottenham - joined the Red Devils seven months after Keane's departure.
Becoming a manager himself is something Carrick might want to pursue one day but that is not something he intends to push for yet.
Faria was linked with a move to Arsenal, replacing Arsene Wenger but now it seems like with Mikel Arteta rumoured to join the club as their new manager, he is going to take helm of a big club in home land Portugal.
