Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick to retire at end of the season

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick to retire at end of the season”

The veteran midfielder has played 463 times for United since joining from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006.

The Manchester United midfielder has made a decision to hang his boots after spending 12 years at Old Trafford, where he played under four different managers after being roped in by the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson.

The 36-year-old has already been offered a coaching role at the club, and said it was "looking likely" he would accept it.

Carrick revealed this at a press conference at Old Trafford on Monday while previewing the second-leg round of 16 UEFA Champions League clash against Sevilla. "That's pretty much where I'm at". We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing to totally confirm as yet.

Carrick has been restricted to only four games this season after he was diagnosed of an irregular heart rhythm earlier in the season, a condition which he said formed a major part in his decision to retire.

"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". It took a little while to get over.

"I wanted to finish on my own terms so I was determined to get back fit".

Carrick has made three appearances in all competitions since returning from the heart complaint, but the skipper is still hoping to have a say in United's fortunes before calling time on his playing career.

Carrick was appointed United captain in the summer and is in his 12th season at Old Trafford.
