Man United's Carrick to hang up his boots at end of season

Man United's Carrick to hang up his boots at end of season

"We won 2-1 against Liverpool on Saturday and at the end of the game there were some who said it was a disaster".

With United only finishing sixth in the Premier League last term, lower than any season under his predecessor Louis van Gaal, United had to beat Ajax in the EL final to make the Portuguese tactician's first campaign in charge any kind of success.

Mourinho has begun the process of reversing that decline, even though United snuck into the Champions League through the back door, by winning the Europa League last season.

A short time later, Jose Mourinho and his players appeared to be in good spirits as they arrived ahead of their Champions League clash with Sevilla after the hotel was given the all clear.

However, former Arsenal star Nicholas seems to feel that the Red Devils are not going to have any problems against the Spanish side and he is tipping them to seal a 2-0 victory in front of their home fans to book their place in the last eight.

Manchester United's win over Liverpool FC lifted them up into second place in the Premier League table as they look to try and finish as close to champions elect Manchester City.

"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.

The tie is evenly poised at 0-0 after the first leg in Spain and Mourinho insists United must improve on their performance in Seville. Sevilla is a really good team and the result of the first leg is a result that leaves everything open. "But the reality in this moment is that we have no advantage at all".
