Thursday, 17 May, 2018

Neville went on to assess how United can close the gap on City next season, with Neville suggesting big changes are on the horizon as Mourinho looks to shake up his first team squad.

Carrick will join the coaching staff this summer.

Manchester United were 1-0 winners against Watford in their final Premier League game of the 2017-18 season.

"As much as we want to win the league and we are desperate to win the league, we are in a better place than what we were past year". For me personally, moving into midfield as I did and playing so many times alongside Michael, he just made it so easy for me.

Retiring skipper Michael Carrick firmly believes Manchester United are in a much better position to challenge for the Premier League title now than 12 months ago.

'However simply because I used to be a half-decent participant, it would not assure you are going to be a hit in no matter you do. "When you see and hear that you want to give the best for the manager and the team".

"He is, no doubt, one of the best midfielders of his generation, although in certain moments he has been underrated - never by his team-mates nor by any other colleague in this sport, for if you like football you like Carrick". "Special memories, things you cherish. I've been at this club, and it is such a great club, so I obviously know the club and the manager", he said.

The Red Devils can still end the season with some silverware if Manchester United beat Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final next weekend.

'I think it will be Michael Carrick in the future.

'It is minimize clear and I can transfer on and focus exclusively on the opposite facet.

"The final chance to cut the cloth clean". "I'm not getting carried away here. Because I've got things, I'm kind of more excited about the future than looking back and being sad that it's over".

"If you have that mentality all season we would have been fighting at the top with Man City for sure. I think he is an underrated player in England and sometimes not only should the goal scorer be rewarded but the real players at the heart of the game". J0se recently stated that Faria will always remain a friend and thanked him for his work.
