Michael Carrick has announced he will retire from football at the end of the season

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. "That's pretty much where I am at".

Carrick grew up near Newcastle but moved to West Ham aged 15, where he made his professional debut.

Carrick is, though, expected to remain at United as part of Jose Mourinho's coaching staff next season.

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.

Carrick has won 18 trophies in 12 years at United, including five Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2008.

But if it eventually happens, the day Cousins signed with the Vikings could be remembered as the moment that changed it all. Keenum had his best season as a pro in 2017, leading Minnesota past New Orleans in the divisional playoffs.

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

Michael Carrick will not play for Manchester United after this season.

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.

'Great teammate and one of the best I've played with. It took a little bit of time to get over but there were some times when, for two or three days, I was thinking 'am I going to carry on playing or not?' or 'is it kind of worth it or not?' but that quickly passed. "I wanted to finish on my own terms". "I am trying to help a lot more because I understand where I am at". "That is where I am at", Carrick said, as reported by the BBC.
