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.

"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.
