Manchester United's Michael Carrick confirms retirement after 2017/18 season

The 36-year-old was treated earlier this season for an irregular heart rhythm

During his time at Old Trafford he has won a whole host of major honours including five Premier League titles, the FA Cup, three League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League while in 2013 he was named the club's Player of the Season. Despite these worldwide appearances, the midfielder has only made one appearance at a major tournament for England, often being overlooked in favour of the likes of Paul Scholes and Steven Gerrard. As such, he's likely to take on a coaching role from next season - discussions are ongoing but "it's been kind of sorted out".

"There comes a time when your body tells you it's time". "That's pretty much where I'm at". That's where I'm at and you have got to accept it. We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing totally confirmed as yet.

Carrick's retirement could also been linked to a heart problem that the 36-year-old has been battling, with the midfielder claiming it flared up once again during a Carabao Cup match earlier this season. "That is where I am at", he said.

"I need to keep myself fit and ready".

But Carrick has now revealed he will hang up his boots at the end of the season.
