Michael Carrick to retire from football

Michael Carrick to retire from football

Carrick said: "There comes a time when as much as you don't like it, it's time to stop playing football".

During his time at Old Trafford, he has won five Premier League titles: 2006/07, 2007/08, 2008/09, 2010/11 and 2012/13.

The 36-year-old is now back to full fitness and has played three times since, but he concedes he will call time on his 19-year career at the end of the campaign. It's something you've got to accept so that's where I am at.

He has since started FA Cup games against Yeovil and Huddersfield and, ahead of the Champions League round-of-16 second leg with Sevilla at Old Trafford on Tuesday, he insists he is keen to play a part on the pitch between now and the end of the season.

Carrick, who is a former England global, joined the Red Devils from Tottenham in 2006 when United's retired veteran manager, Sir Alex Ferguson convinced him to swapped White Hart Lane for the Old Trafford.

The English midfielder despite being benched for the majority of the season remained a go-to man for manager Jose Mourinho and is expected to join his backroom staff after hanging his boots in the summer.

"But, yeah, it's looking likely".

Carrick underwent a treatment for irregular heart rhythm a year ago after he complained of feeling uneasy in Manchester United's clash against Burton in the Carabao Cup.

"I'm totally fine now, took a bit of time to get over". At least I could decide and not be forced because of that, so I was determined to get back fit.

"I think it's pretty much already been said, to be honest with you", he replied when asked whether he was retiring.

"I understood I'd be getting back fit that I wouldn't be playing as many games as probably I might have done, but that's something that I understood". So far this season, the midfielder has been restricted to just four appearances because of cardiac arrhythmia.
