Manchester United's Carrick to retire at end of the season

The Old Trafford club captain told a news conference on Monday: "There comes a time, wether".

The 36-year-old has already been offered a coaching role at the club, and said it was "looking likely" he would accept it. That's pretty much where I'm at, which is fine.

He added: "It's kind of been sorted out, but we're still talking about it so there is nothing to totally confirm yet". Despite these worldwide appearances, the midfielder has only made one appearance at a major tournament for England, often being overlooked in favour of the likes of Paul Scholes and Steven Gerrard.

"I'm clear now, it took a bit of time to get over".

Carrick underwent a procedure earlier in the season to treat an irregular heart rhythm.

'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. For two or three days I was thinking am going to carry on playing is it worth it but that passed and I got fit.

"I wanted to finish on my own terms so I was determined to get back fit. I am trying to help a lot more because I understand where I am at".

He has scored a total of 24 goals for Manchester United, who are now placed at the second position in the league, 13 points behind leaders Manchester City.
