He added: "If he leaves Old Trafford, that's a detriment to Manchester United and so it's great he is going to stay and continue to have a role at the club".

"You don't know what you've really got until you are tested".

Carrick joins a host of other recently retired English footballers who have taken various roles within coaching, such as Steven Gerrard, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes.

Carrick returned to action last month, but has confirmed at the press conference ahead of Tuesday's UCL clash with Sevilla, that he will be retiring at the end of the season. We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing to totally confirm as yet.

Carrick underwent a treatment for irregular heart rhythm past year after he complained of feeling uneasy in Manchester United's clash against Burton in the Carabao Cup.

Factory production up 7.5% in January, February inflation eases
In January, manufacturing grew by a robust 8.7 per cent, followed by 7.6 per cent increase in electricity generation. Fuel inflation, calculated by adding petrol, diesel, fuel and light components, eased to 5.9% from 6.4% in January.

Obviously, the news has come as an upsetting incident for United fans, but won't be too anxious about a replacement for the 36-year-old with the current emergence of youngster Scott McTominay.

Carrick has made three appearances in all competitions since returning from the heart complaint, but the skipper is still hoping to have a say in United's fortunes before calling time on his playing career. "I wanted to finish on my own terms".

"I understood I'd be getting back fit that I wouldn't be playing as many games as probably I might have done, but that's something that I understood. I've been training hard and we'll see what happens for the rest of the season", said Carrick.

After two seasons at White Hart Lane, he secured a move to Old Trafford, where he went on to win five Premier League titles and the Champions League and became club captain following Wayne Rooney's departure to Everton in the summer. "There were 2 or 3 times when I wondered whether it was worth still playing, but I soon got over that".
