Man United's Carrick to hang up his boots at end of season

Man United's Carrick to hang up his boots at end of season

Carrick underwent a procedure earlier in the season to treat an irregular heart rhythm.

"That's pretty much where I'm at, which is fine".

But the veteran midfielder is convinced that Manchester United's future is safe thanks to Scott McTominay.

Jose Mourinho has made it clear that Carrick will be welcome to join his coaching set-up at Old Trafford and the player also added that something will be sorted out in due course.

While he's not officially said yes, the classy midfielder seems to be inclined to taking up Mourinho on the offer and an announcement is likely to be made in the summer regarding his future at the club.

"There comes a time when, you like it or you don't like it, your body tells you it's time to stop playing football and that's pretty much where I'm at", Carrick said on Monday.

"You don't know what you've really got until you are tested". "We're still talking about it to be honest so there is nothing to totally confirm yet, but it's looking likely".

The Red Devils host Sevilla in the second leg of their last-16 tie at Old Trafford on Tuesday night and will then take on Swansea in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup on the weekend. "It's a big thing to play for this club, but so far he's on a great track, he's given himself the best possible chance to fulfil that".

"After the heart issue, I had two or three days thinking 'am I going to carry on?' I got back fit and wanted to finish on my own terms", he continued. Hopefully I can get some game time and I am still enjoying training. 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.

Obviously, the news has come as an upsetting incident for United fans, but won't be too anxious about a replacement for the 36-year-old with the current emergence of youngster Scott McTominay.

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