Michael Carrick Announces Retirement From Football

Michael Carrick

Manchester United's Michael Carrick has confirmed this will be his last season as a player.

"I'm probably trying to help a lot more now than I have in the past because I understand where I am at - a bit of a responsibility, obviously being as captain this season, as well but just the age I am at".

Despite notching 34 caps with England, he has only represented the Three Lions in one major global tournament.

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.

Last season's Europa League triumph completed Carrick's sweep of domestic and European club trophies.

The the 36-year old former England worldwide, made the disclosure while fielding questions from journalists ahead of his teams Champions league second half clash against Sevilla.

Oakman also says that the childhood poverty rate is a major factor in Washington County's ranking; there, the rate is 28 percent. Republic is in north central Kansas, Morton is in the southwest corner, and Labette and Woodson are in the southeast corner.

Considering the stiff competition the Red Devils are likely to face in the UEFA Champions League should they beat Sevilla, the FA Cup is perhaps their most realistic hope of ensuring their 2017-18 season doesn't end without a trophy.

The 21-year-old has impressed in the heart of the Manchester United team and has even managed to keep Paul Pogba out of the team.

The former England global said that a move into coaching at Old Trafford was "looking likely".

The 24-year-old midfielder - who surprisingly started the goalless first leg on the bench in Spain - was injured on the eve of the Liverpool clash and was conspicuous by his absence from the section of training open to the media on Monday.

Carrick has seen his playing time this season limited after having gone minor surgery to correct an irregular heart rhythm. Hopefully I can get some game time and I am still enjoying training. "I wanted to finish on my own terms".
