Retiring Manchester United Star Michael Carrick Likely To Take Up Coaching Role

The post Man United Captain Carrick Confirms Plans To Retire At End Of Season appeared first on Complete Sports Nigeria.

He signed for United in 2006 from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006 and has so far made 463 appearances for the club while scoring 24 goals across competitions.

Carrick was on the move again two seasons later when Manchester United forked out £14 million to acquire his signature - and it proved money well spent as he contributed to their dominance at the start of the millennium.

"There comes a time when, you like it or you don't like it, your body tells you it's time to top playing football and that's pretty much where I'm at", Carrick said on Monday. That's pretty much where I'm at. That's where I'm at and you have got to accept it.

"It's kind of being sorted out, we're still talking about it to be honest. But, yeah, it's looking likely", he stated.

Carrick underwent a routine procedure for an irregular heart rhythm this past fall, and thus hasn't been available most of the season.

"The same problem came back on the Sunday of that week in training, so then I had the procedure the following week, which I went through and now it's totally fine and I'm clear. I am trying to help a lot more because I understand where I am at", he concluded. But that quickly passed and I got back fit.

He became a Champions League victor when United saw off Chelsea on penalties in Moscow in 2008 and, although he lost subsequent finals in Europe's top competition against Barcelona in 2009 and 2011, last season's Europa League triumph completed an individual clean sweep of major domestic and European club trophies. The problem emerged when the midfielder complained of feeling dizzy following United's Carabao Cup win over Burton Albion in September.
