Carrick: Man Utd can compete

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick believes the club will compete for the Premier League title next season, Sky Sports has reported.

United went into last year as champions but finished well off the pace in seventh, 22 points behind champions and local rivals Manchester City. David Moyes was sacked in April with Louis van Gaal eventually appointed as his replacement, to take over when the Netherlands’ World Cup participation comes to an end.


Carrick admitted that the previous campaign was an unhappy one even though the players still tried their best. “Yes, it's not a nice feeling when things don't go right,” Carrick said. “You give your best as everyone did, sometimes it just doesn't go for us and that was the case over too long a time really.


“You have dips and you expect to get over them quick - and at times we showed that we were going to get over them - and then just as results and performances were changing we took a step back again,” he continued. “That was very frustrating.


“Looking back it was a disappointing campaign, but we’ve got to learn from it. Never stop learning and take what we can. We've still certainly got enough quality in the squad anyway, regardless of who is coming in this summer, to be up there challenging again.”


United have added Spain international midfielder Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao and Southampton’s England international left-back Luke Shaw to their squad for the coming campaign.


Carrick has been at United since 2006, moving to Old Trafford from Tottenham Hotspur, going on to make more than 350 appearances for the club and winning five Premier League titles.
