Michael Carrick Has His Say On Who Will Replace Him At Manchester United

He's being a very influential player for United over the years and so will take some replacing at United.

But do the Red Devils need to look for someone like Borussia Dortmund's Julian Weigl, or Jean-Michael Seri of Nice?

It seems the man himself doesn't think so - he has spoke glowingly of 21-year old midfielder Scott McTominay and reckons he has what it takes to have a very good career.

McTominay made his United debut last season and has made a total of 12 appearances this term, including a start in place of Paul Pogba against Huddersfield Town in the league a couple of weeks back.

He signed a new contract until 2021 back in October and Carrick thinks he could go far.

"The improvement has been so great over the last six to 12 months, when we've seen him training with us a lot more.

"You can see that he steps up to every challenge that has been set in every environment. He is an athlete. He is strong, quick and very good on the ball. He has got all of the attributes to have a really good career.

"I know he will take my place someday and that is not something I would be afraid of, or try to put him off, because it is important to help the future and Scott is definitely that.

"It is my responsibility to do all I can to help him."
