Arm­band honor for United’s Carrick

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Michael Carrick has suc­ceeded Wayne Rooney as cap­tain of Manch­ester United after the club’s all-time top scorer’s move back to Ever­ton.

“It feels great and it is such a huge honor to cap­tain such a great club,” Carrick told MUTV on Tues­day.

The 35-year-old former Tot­ten­ham mid­fielder added: “It is my 12th year now and I came as a 25-year-old. I never thought I could be here for so long and achieve so much.

“Now, to lead the boys and look after the young boys, to guide them in some ways, it is a nice thing and a real plea­sure.”
