Manchester United's Carrick to retire at end of the season

Manchester United's Carrick to retire at end of the season”

There's usually two Manchester United topics which stand out for the Spanish sport press, and those are Jose Mourinho and David de Gea, and the Portuguese coach has given them a chance to combine the two.

"Not looking past Tuesday night, but for seasons ahead now I think as a squad we need to develop, we need to be constantly in this position and expect it of ourselves and keep them standards high". 'I don't know (if he can play), we don't know yet, but he trained a little bit after you left'. "Martial is fit yes".

He has not played since December 26.

Carrick has played three times since, with United winning each game without conceding a goal.

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.

Asked if United have the potential to go all the way this season, Mourinho was cautious.

"Not yet, but when a team reaches the last eight, anything is possible", Mourinho said. "Now I have only one name and that is Sevilla, I know is very hard to go through". "Now I have only one name and that is Sevilla".

Michael Carrick will call time on his professional career at the end of this season, the Manchester United and England midfielder has confirmed.

The 36-year-old club captain has featured sparingly for United this season, having been sidelined earlier in the campaign due to a heart scare.

"There comes a time when, as much as you like or don't like it, your body tells you it's time to stop playing". It's something you've got to accept so that's where I am at.

"I've tried all sorts of different things to bring the best out of me over the years and I can say that I've given my best, so I can look back with no regrets".
