Michael Carrick Given Guard Of Honour In Final Career Game

Michael Carrick Given Guard Of Honour In Final Career Game

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick was given a guard of honour in his final game as a professional footballer today.

The 36-year old, who will take up a role in Jose Mourinho's coaching staff after hanging up his boots, was given the captaincy for his last game and was shown the ultimate respect by his peers and opposition players from Watford as he walked out the Old Trafford tunnel alongside his kids.

After arriving for a reported £18.6 million from Spurs in 2006, the classy central midfielder has gone on to make 464 appearances for the club, winning one FA Cup, one Champions League, three League Cups and five Premier League titles.

While there is always the feeling that he was criminally underrated in his career, Carrick will retire a huge United fan favourite and going off what United players have said so far, he looks set to be a sound addition to the backroom staff.
