Wayne Rooney pens tribute to Michael Carrick on Twitter

Wayne Rooney pens tribute to Michael Carrick on Twitter

The thirty-six year old has barely featured for the Red Devils this season, making just four appearances while he had a minor operation to treat an irregular heartbeat in October.

The veteran midfielder has played 463 times for United since joining from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006. He also had loan stints with Swindon Town and Birmingham City early in his career.

With United out of contention in the Premier League, their sole chances of winning any silverware in Carrick's final season lie in the UEFA Champions League and the FA Cup.

"Obviously, I had the problem in the Burton game, when it started during the second half, and then had a few tests after that", he revealed at a press conference at Old Trafford previewing the Sevilla game on Tuesday in the Champions League. "That is where I am at", Carrick said, as reported by the BBC.

In January, United boss Jose Mourinho said he expected Carrick to retire at the end of 2017-18 and join the Old Trafford coaching staff - a move the player himself acknowledges as his likely next step.

"There comes a time when, you like it or you don t like it, your body tells you it s time to top playing football and that s pretty much where I m at", Carrick said on Monday.

Carrick added: "All the glitz and the glamour that can surround things these days, Scott doesn't seem too interested in that, which is fantastic - especially at this stage of his career".

"But, yeah, it's looking likely". It's something you've got to accept so that's where I am at.

"I wanted to finish on my own terms so I was determined to get back fit". I understood after getting back fit that I wouldn't be playing as many games as perhaps I might have done, but that's something that I understood.

"I understood that I wouldn't be playing as many games, but I've been training hard and trying to keep fit".
