Michael Carrick unaware of long-term future and keen to focus on the short-term at Manchester United

27 Feb

Michael Carrick is enjoying his football rather than worrying whether he will still be a Manchester United player next season.

This is the midfielder’s 10th campaign at Old Trafford, during which time he has collected five Premier League winners’ medals and a Champions League.

Carrick’s time in the north-west could soon be up, though, as the midfielder’s contract expires in the summer.

Arsenal, Newcastle and even the Chinese Super League have been mentioned as possible destinations, but the 34-year-old is only concerned about enjoying himself with United and England.

“I don’t know, to be honest,” stand-in captain Carrick said when asked about his future.

“I don’t expect to play every game – this week the run of games we’ve had to play would be a big ask for me.

“I’ve probably played 25, 26, 27 games or something so far, so it’s not bad.

“I want to play every game because you’re used to playing most games, but it’s just how it is.

“I’m just enjoying playing at the moment. How long is it going to last? When you get to this stage, you don’t know, so I am just trying to enjoy it for what it is and see where that takes me.”
