Manchester United set to name brilliant midfielder as new captain: report

Manchester United Football Club are about to part with Wayne Rooney, with a move to Everton in the offing. Obviously, he’s currently our club captain and that role would be handed to someone else going forward. Now, The Sun name Michael Carrick as that man.

That’s what Neil Custis writes anyway, with the journalist also adding that Ander Herrera is set to be named Manchester United’s new vice-captain, and that move will go down well with the Old Trafford faithful.

Carrick has been at United for well over a decade, and ever since day one, he has been an absolutely wonderful player for our club. He’s won the lot here, completing the set with the FA Cup and Europa League titles in his last two years.

He just gets what United is about, and when called upon last season, he did a stellar job and never let his manager or his teammates down.

We all know about Herrera’s passion and love for the game, and awarding him with the vice-captaincy role is just a superb show of faith in him from the gaffer.

With Carrick ageing, we could well see the loveable Basque-born midfielder handed the main job in twelve months time too.
