The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with Michael Carrick this season…
Though Jose Mourinho was hesitant to use him earlier in the campaign, the Englishman eventually forced his way into the Portuguese’s plans – becoming a regular alongside the likes of Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba.
Though he is now in his mid-30s, the midfielder has proven that he can still go with players ten years younger, changing up his play style to ensure that he can play a role. Able to dictate the game from the heart of midfield, his role has been vital this year.
On Wednesday evening, Man Utd’s game against Southampton had very little riding on it, but for Michael Carrick, it was actually a pretty big event. Indeed, his appearance marked his 700th game in his career – highlighting just how long the Englishman has been around.
