Armband honor for United’s Carrick
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.”
