When Michael Carrick Started Manchester United Chants In The Away End Against Burnley

It's almost 15 years since the supremely underrated Michael Carrick made his debut for Manchester United.

In a trophy-laden spell at Old Trafford, the midfielder made 464 appearances during a magnificent 12-year stay, lifting multiple Premier League titles and of course, that Champions League win in 2008.

Carrick also had a great bond with the United fans throughout his spell at Old Trafford and a prime example of that relationship came in 2018 at Turf Moor.

Months after retiring, the 39-year-old was spotted singing with the away support during United's Premier League clash against Burnley - even starting chants on several occasions.

Manchester United's official Twitter account posted the following video of Carrick standing with his arms aloft. Classic.


Shortly after Anthony Martial's goal gave United an important win over Burnley, the former Spurs man shared his delight on Twitter.

He actually went on to reveal that it was his son's first game in the away stand. A special day for both.

Carrick had a number of admirers during his time at United, including Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, who labelled him as one of the best holding midfielders he'd ever seen.

"I am a big fan of Michael [Carrick]," the former Barcelona boss said ahead of the 2017 Manchester derby.

"He is one of the best holding midfielders I've ever seen in my life by far. He's at the level of Xabi Alonso and Sergio Busquets."

Is Carrick one of the most underrated players in Premier League history?

Let us know in the comments.
