Carrick key to Man Utd, says Ferguson

Saturday 21 July 2012

Sir Alex Ferguson has praised Michael Carrick, stating that the midfielder is the key player to the middle of his Manchester United team.



Reported in the Daily Mirror, the 70-year-old has offered high praise to the former Tottenham and West Ham player despite the fact that Carrick failed to make an impression on the first team this time last year.


Ferguson said: “I think Carrick is the key to it. He did really well in the second half of last season and I think he’s going to be the key man. They will all play a part but, for me, Carrick is the key player.” The 30-year-old has played 180 league games for United since joining in 2006 from Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 13 goals in that time and winning the Premier League four times and the Champions League once.


Carrick is often found to be the forgotten man when it comes to the selection process. He had to wait until the middle of last season to remind fans what he can do. Carrick also took no part in Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2012 squad despite regulars Gareth Barry and Frank Lampard missing out through injury. Jordan Henderson was chosen instead.
