Manchester United captain Michael Carrick to retire at end of season

The former England international made the announcement at his press conference on Monday

"It's something that you have got to accept", the Englishman said.

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

The the 36-year old former England worldwide, made the disclosure while fielding questions from journalists ahead of his teams Champions league second half clash against Sevilla. That's pretty much where I'm at, which is fine.

"It's early days, he has a long way to go to get to the other end of the scale where I am but I will try to help him as much as I can. That's where I'm at".

"Yes. It's kind of been sorted out", the midfielder stated whether he would be moving behind the scenes.

Tiger Woods to return to Australia as Presidents Cup captain
When asked last month about being named as an assistant to Furyk in this year's Ryder Cup, Woods hinted at being a player-captain. Captains alone will not change the outcome, a position that former worldwide captains Greg Norman and Nick Price have expressed.

Carrick, capped 34 times by England, has looked likely to leave United in recent summers only to pen extensions at a club that rewarded his fine service with a testimonial past year. "We're still talking about it to be honest so there is nothing to totally confirm yet but it's looking likely".

'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 had a procedure the following week", he said. Hopefully I can get some game time and I am still enjoying training.

Former West Ham United and Tottenham midfielder Carrick has won five Premier League titles and the Champions League during his time with Man United, and was handed the captain's armband a year ago following Wayne Rooney's departure.

'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. At least I could decide and not be forced because of that, so I was determined to get back fit. Signed for £18 million, he has played 463 times for the Mancunians and also represented England 38 times, named in the Three Lions' squad to both Germany 2006 and South Africa 2010 FIFA World Cup tournaments but did not play a single minute.
