Michael Carrick has announced he will retire from football at the end of the season

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick confirmed on Monday he will bring an end to his illustrious career at the end of the current season at the age of 36.

United boss Jose Mourinho confirmed the Englishman will have a place on his coaching team once he stops playing and with Rooney tipping him for success, it seems Carrick is set to remain a part of the Red Devils beyond the ongoing season.

Carrick was appointed United captain in the summer and is in his 12th season at Old Trafford.

It has always been expected that Carrick would hang up his boots at the end of the campaign - something the veteran confirmed on Monday, along with his intention to take up manager Mourinho's offer to join the coaching staff.
