Michael Carrick Announces Retirement To Make Move Into Coaching

Club captain Michael Carrick has confirmed that he will bring his 12-year spell at Manchester United to an end in the summer when retiring from playing duties.

"There comes a time when your body tells you it's time".

The England global has pretty much won it all at domestic level. He's only seen action a handful of times this season, but on the eve of United's hosting Sevilla with a UEFA Champions League quarterfinal berth at stake, Carrick still maintains that he'll play a role with the current team before season's end.

Carrick underwent a treatment for irregular heart rhythm past year after he complained of feeling uneasy in Manchester United's clash against Burton in the Carabao Cup.

The Lok Sabha bypolls in Gorakhpur and Phulpur saw low turnouts of 43 per cent and 37.4 per cent, respectively. Fifty-seven per cent polling was recorded in the by-election to the Araria Lok Sabha constituency in Bihar .

Carrick was on the move again two seasons later when Manchester United forked out £14 million to acquire his signature - and it proved money well spent as he contributed to their dominance at the start of the millennium.

"But we are back in the knockout stages where it really counts and you get that extra spicy feeling".

"It's kind of been sorted", added Carrick. "That's where I'm at", he said.

"The same problem came back on the Sunday of that week in training, so then I had the procedure the following week, which I went through and now it's totally fine and I'm clear".

Anthony Davis posts triple-double with 10 blocks vs. Jazz
Denver, who matched Utah's 37-30 record, enter a hard stretch in their schedule with eight of their next nine games on the road. New Orleans star Anthony Davis had his first career triple-double with 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 blocked shots in the loss.

United sealed a 2-1 win over their arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford in the Premier League clash on Saturday.

"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".

The 36-year-old club captain has featured sparingly for United this season, having been sidelined earlier in the campaign due to a heart scare.
