Manchester United captain Michael Carrick confirms retirement decision

Manchester United midfielder, Michael Carrick, has announced his decision to retire from football at the end of the 2017/2018 season.

Carrick is, though, expected to remain at United as part of Jose Mourinho's coaching staff next season.

Carrick, who is set to call time on his Manchester United career at the end of the campaign, singled out McTominay for special praise.

"The good thing about it is that because he is so experienced and has been at the club for 12 years, the knowledge he has got, he can pass it down to the young lads".

The 36-year-old, who has featured 463 times for the Red Devils since joining from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006, has been offered the chance to return to the club in a coaching capacity. We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing totally confirmed as yet. "But it's looking likely, yeah".

Carrick has seen his playing time this season limited after having gone minor surgery to correct an irregular heart rhythm.

"But that quickly passed, and I got back fit and I wanted to finish on my own terms, really, where at least I could decide and not be forced because of that".

Anti-party line: Mehbooba Mufti sacks finance minister Haseeb Drabu
However, sources said Mehbooba and those close to her didn't trust him and suspected him of being close to the BJP and RSS. Drabu has deliberately made the statement to prove his credentials to quarters that matter to him.

'Obviously, I had the problem in the Burton game, when it started during the second half, and then had a few tests after that, ' he told the media ahead of tomorrow's game.

"I understood that I wouldn't be playing as many games, but I've been training hard and trying to keep fit".

"I understood after getting back fit that I wouldn't be playing as many games as perhaps I might have done, but that's something that I understood".

Despite notching 34 caps with England, he has only represented the Three Lions in one major global tournament.

"I don't know (if he can play), we don't know yet, but he trained a little bit after you left".

Mourinho added: "I remember his beginning when he was not always on the bench but I was taking him with the team as an extra player".
