Michael Carrick to hang up his boots at end of the season

United manager Jose Mourinho has already suggested the 36-year-old will be retiring which former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder has now clarified. He also had loan stints with Swindon Town and Birmingham City early in his career.

He became a Champions League victor when United saw off Chelsea on penalties in Moscow in 2008 and, although he lost subsequent finals in Europe's top competition against Barcelona in 2009 and 2011, last season's Europa League triumph completed an individual clean sweep of major domestic and European club trophies.

Internationally, he represented England thirty-four times and was part of the squads for the World Cup finals in both 2006 and 2010.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference for Tuesday's Champions League visit of Sevilla, he said: "There comes a time when as much as you don't like it, it's time to stop playing football".

The England worldwide has pretty much won it all at domestic level.

He said that a move into coaching at United was "looking likely". We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing totally confirmed as yet.

"Obviously, I had the problem in the Burton game, when it started during the second half, and then had a few tests after that", the ex-Spurs man said.

"I'm clear now, it took a bit of time to get over". The England midfielder confirmed that he is totally fine now and wants to finish on his own terms. "I am trying to help a lot more because I understand where I am at".

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 past year.
