PV Sports Desk : Michael Carrick has succeeded Wayne Rooney as captain of Manchester United after the club’s all-time top goalscorer’s move back to Everton.

“It feels great and it is such a huge honour to captain such a great club,” Carrick told the club’s MUTV on Tuesday.

The 35-year-old added: “It is my 12th year now and I came as a 25-year-old. I never thought I could be here for so long and achieve so much.

“Now, to lead the boys and look after the young boys, to guide them in some ways, it is a nice thing and a real pleasure.

“I came to this club as a footballer and I am now a huge fan. I have grown to love the club over the years and to be in this position is very special for me.”
