Manchester United's Michael Carrick confirms he will retire at end of season


United sealed a 2-1 win over their arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford in the Premier League clash on Saturday. Despite these worldwide appearances, the midfielder has only made one appearance at a major tournament for England, often being overlooked in favour of the likes of Paul Scholes and Steven Gerrard.

The 36-year-old midfielder has played sparingly for United this season, after a heart scare earlier this season.

"There comes a time when as much as you don't like, it's time to stop playing football", Carrick confirmed, quoted by the Press Association's Simon Peach. It's something you have to accept.

In January, apparel played a major role in boosting inflation, with the biggest rise in prices in about 28 years. However, the core CPI inflation rose marginally to 5.04% in February 2018 compared with 5.00% in January 2018.

"It's kind of been sorted", added Carrick.

"Obviously, I had the problem in the Burton game, when it started during the second half, and then had a few tests after that", the ex-Spurs man said. "I've been training hard and we'll see what happens for the rest of the season", said Carrick.

Unite manager Jose Mourinho has said he would be keen to add Carrick to his first-team coaching staff and the former England global admits there is a good chance he could be on the bench from next season.

"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".

During his tenure at United the Newcastle-born midfielder has scored 24 goals and has already been given a testimonial by the club, which took place last June.

"I need to keep myself fit and ready". Hopefully I can get some game time and I am still enjoying training.
