Michael Carrick Has The Perfect Reply To Offensive Tweet
While Michael Carrick may not be as consistent as he once was on the pitch, off it he's just as sharp as ever, as the Manchester United midfielder's response to a Twitter troll yesterday, proved.
Carrick played a crucial role in United's 2-1 FA Cup semi-final victory over Everton yesterday, anchoring the Red Devils' midfield effectively as he has done for a decade at Old Trafford. However, despite his performance, one fan decided to fire some offensive words about the 34-year-old's mobility over Twitter.
@carras16 for all your qualities, you still move like a 70 year old man with arthritis- Aanan Haque (@AananHaque) April 23, 2016
Carrick, however, much like he is on the pitch, was unnerved and had the perfect, self deprecating response
Really??- Michael Carrick (@carras16) April 23, 2016
I'd say that's very harsh on the 70 year old man myself. :joy: https://t.co/dyRJE8rafi
