Manchester United Football Club’s season is winding down to a close, with Jose Mourinho’s men having a mixed first season under their new management. One man who has drifted in and out of proceedings is veteran Michael Carrick. When he has played, the rest of our starting line-up seem a whole lot calmer.
It’s his testimonial at the end of the season after some brilliant services to the Old Trafford club, and I personally thought it would have been this coming summer when he called time on his Old Trafford career. That may not be the case, however…
According to the BBC, the 35-year-old is set for a one-year contract extension at the Theatre of Dreams. The report says that contract talks are progressing very well, and both parties want to come to a positive arrangement.
For me, this is great news. United already have a whole host of team issue that they need to address this coming summer, and if Carrick can commit to another twelve months that’d help out the manager in that regard.
Obviously, he isn’t going to play every week but there are matches that’ll suit his style down to a tee. On top of his ability, it’s always great to have those experienced veterans in and around the dressing room, and his winning mentality and attitude will rub off on the rest of the squad.
