Michael Carrick to hang up his boots at end of the season


Speaking at the pre-match press conference for Tuesday's Champions League visit of Sevilla, he said: "There comes a time when as much as you don't like it, it's time to stop playing football".

The 36-year-old confirmed the news on Monday, which was expected to come sooner or later, revealing that he will hang up his boots at the end of 12 successful years at the club.

He said that a move into coaching at United was "looking likely". That's pretty much where I am at'. It's something you've got to accept so that's where I am at. "It's kind of been sorted out (for a coaching role). I've been training hard and we'll see what happens for the rest of the season", said Carrick.

However, Carrick has been limited to just four appearances in all competitions this term due to an irregular heart rhythm that saw him undergo a procedure to treat the problem. Hopefully I can get some game time and I am still enjoying training.

"It took a little bit of time to get over but there were some times when, for two or three days, I was thinking 'am I going to carry on playing or not?' or 'is it kind of worth it or not?' but that quickly passed. I am trying to help a lot more because I understand where I am at", he concluded.
