He has since started FA Cup games against Yeovil and Huddersfield and, ahead of the Champions League round-of-16 second leg with Sevilla at Old Trafford on Tuesday, he insists he is keen to play a part on the pitch between now and the end of the season.
In a news conference on Monday, Manchester United Captain Michael Carrick confirmed what most had been anticipating all along this season- that it will be his last as a player.
Former West Ham United and Tottenham midfielder Carrick has won five Premier League titles and the Champions League during his time with Man United, and was handed the captain's armband previous year following Wayne Rooney's departure.
Carrick, who was capped 34 times by England, underwent a procedure to correct an irregular heart rhythm, having initially felt unwell during the EFL Cup win over Burton Albion last September.
Carrick added: "Scott has had a similar ride to Marcus (Rashford)".
"There comes a time when, as much as you like or don't like it, your body tells you it's time to stop playing football", the midfielder admitted. "That's pretty much where I'm at, which is fine".
