When Michael Carrick Started Man Utd Chants In The Away Stand vs Burnley

When Michael Carrick Started Man Utd Chants In The Away Stand vs Burnley

On this day in 2006, Michael Carrick made his debut for Manchester United and the rest is, well, history.

In his 12 year spell with the club the 37-year-old became a club legend, making over 300 appearances for the club. Now, he sits alongside manager Jose Mourinho on the sidelines as he continues to show his affection for the club and its fans.

On the subject of Carrick and his relationship with the fans, It's not very often a player decides to join supporters in the stands, but he certainly enjoyed his time at Turf Moor last season.

Carrick, who retired at the end of the season, was spotted singing with the away support during United's Premier League tie 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.

Back in November last year, Carrick explained the reason why he was absent from the Manchester United squad for over two months.

The 36-year old, who had a testimonial to recognise his efforts for the club, was appointed club captain following the departure of Wayne Rooney.

Manchester United's biggest flops...

In a statement released on his official social media channels, the England international revealed that after the win at Old Trafford, a series of tests found that he had an irregular heartbeat - leading to him having minor heart surgery.

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

Let us know in the comments.
