Manchester United: Fans heap praise on retired midfielder

Manchester United fans have heaped praise on former midfielder Michael Carrick after one fan tweeted saying he could still play for the club.

Carrick featured for the Premier League All-Stars in their game against Manchester City Legends in Vincent Kompany’s testimonial last night.

The former Red Devil made more than 460 appearances for the club, winning a mammoth 18 trophies during a successful career at the north-west club.

The former England international signed from north London outfit Tottenham Hotspur for a fee which may have eventually risen to £18.6m (via BBC).

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s midfield has been considerably weakened over the summer after it saw the departure of Ander Herrera. The Spaniard moved to French champions Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer after his contract at Old Trafford expired.

The fans of the north-west club took to Twitter as they praised the retired midfielder, with some thinking he could ‘easily’ play for the club again.

Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:
