Michael Carrick takes over as Manchester United captain


Michael Carrick proved his worth to Manchester United as he becomes the new team captain following the departure of Wayne Rooney.

The 35-year-old expressed his honor for succeeding Rooney’s position and leading Jose Mourinho’s men in the coming season.

“It feels great and it is such a huge honor to captain such a great club. It is my 12th year not and I came as a 25-year-old. I never thought I could be here for so long and achieve so much.

“I have grown to love the club over the years and to be in this position is very special for me.”

Carrick when asked on his captaincy style, the English footballer confidently said that he will plainly be himself. There will be no screaming and shouting at everyone in order to instruct United men on what they have to do in the future matches ahead (stand by for betting tips in the fast approaching 2017/18 season).

The midfielder arrived at the Old Trafford from Tottenham in 2006. And last term, he made a total of 38 appearances where 23 came from Premier League matches.  However, Carrick didn’t start a league game until November and was a substitute for both the EFL Cup final and Europa League final.
