Manchester United veteran midfielder Michael Carrick announces end of season retirement

Michael Carrick has announced he will retire from football at the end of the season

During his glittering career with the Old Trafford club, Carrick has won five Premier League titles, a Champions League, FA Cup and a Europa League title.

"There comes a time when, you like it or you don't like it, your body tells you it's time to stop playing football and that's pretty much where I'm at", Carrick said on Monday. "That is where I am at", Carrick said, as reported by the BBC.

Carrick, capped 34 times by England, has looked likely to leave United in recent summers only to pen extensions at a club that rewarded his fine service with a testimonial previous year.

Carrick joins a host of other recently retired English footballers who have taken various roles within coaching, such as Steven Gerrard, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes. We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing to totally confirm as yet.

Iraqi prime minister reopens Kurdish airports to global flights
Around 25 million Kurds live in a territory that spans the borders of modern-day Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Iran and Armenia. It is not clear if the autonomous region will maintain its independent visa system after the blockade ends .

While Carrick has always had his critics, he has been admired by every United coach he's worked with, from Alex Ferguson all the way through to Mourinho.

United boss Jose Mourinho suggested at the beginning of the year that the 34-cap England global would likely bring the curtain down on his career at the end of the campaign and, speaking to reporters ahead of Tuesday's meeting with Sevilla, Carrick confirmed the news.

"It started in the Burton game and then happened again in training", Carrick added, discussing his health problem.

"I wanted to finish on my own terms so I was determined to get back fit".

NCAA Tournament UCLA vs. St. Bonaventure
Each of the lowest four seeded at-large teams are required to play in the First Four as are the four lowest automatic qualifiers. While Jaylen Adams is good, Aaron Holiday is another level good, and will be tough for the Bonnies to defend in this game.

"You get that extra spicy feeling, there's that little bit extra to it and we want to be playing these games. I am trying to help a lot more because I understand where I am at".

The 36-year-old midfielder has played sparingly for United this season, after a heart scare earlier this season.

"Hopefully I can get some game-time at some point between now and the end of the season", he said.
