The 36-year-old struggled to cement a starting berth in England's midfield, with former managers such as Sven-Goran Eriksson, Fabio Capello and Roy Hodgson instead favouring the likes of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard. He also had loan stints with Swindon Town and Birmingham City early in his career.

Carrick's outstanding two-year spell in north London earned him a move to Manchester United, his club for the last 12 years, for £25m.

Internationally, he represented England thirty-four times and was part of the squads for the World Cup finals in both 2006 and 2010.

The 36-year-old announced his retirement plans ahead of United's all-important tie with Sevilla in the Champions League for the last-16 return leg.

"So that's pretty much where I'm at, which is fine".

Carrick, who will retire from playing football at the end of the season, hailed the 21-year-old's hard work and focus which he believes is giving McTominay the best chance of fulfilling an established career.




While Carrick has always had his critics, he has been admired by every United coach he's worked with, from Alex Ferguson all the way through to Mourinho. "It's kind of been sorted out (for a coaching role)".

"There comes a time when as much as you don't like it, it's time to stop playing football. It's something that you have got to accept". "We're still talking about it to be honest so there is nothing to totally confirm yet, but it's looking likely".

"I wanted to finish on my own terms so I was determined to get back fit".

Carrick has made just three starts since undergoing a heart procedure in September.

"I need to keep myself fit and ready. I am trying to help a lot more because I understand where I am at", he concluded.

"Hopefully I can get some game-time at some point between now and the end of the season", he said.
