Manchester United midfielder, Michael Carrick, has announced he will be retiring from playing football at the end of the season.

The 36-year-old, who won 34 caps for England, underwent a procedure in November to treat an irregular heart rhythm, after which he declared himself "healthy", but he has only played three times since.

Carrick has played three times since, with United winning each game without conceding a goal. "That's pretty much where I'm at".

The former England global also indicated there is a good chance he will remain on the bench next season, albeit in a coaching role. "It's kind of been sorted out (for a coaching role)".

Carrick made just one Premier League appearance this season and saw Nemanja Matic partner Ander Herrera and lately Scott Mctominay as his replacements in the United midfield.

Carrick revealed this at a press conference at Old Trafford on Monday while previewing the second-leg round of 16 UEFA Champions League clash against Sevilla. "We're still talking about it to be honest so there is nothing to totally confirm yet but it's looking likely".

"I'm totally fine now, took a bit of time to get over".

"I wanted to finish on my own terms so I was determined to get back fit".

"It started in the Burton game and then happened again in training", Carrick said. "I am trying to help a lot more because I understand where I am at". Tried to work for the team, being known as a team player I think is important.
