Michael Carrick has been named as Manchester United’s new captain.
The midfielder replaces Wayne Rooney, who has returned to Everton this summer.
Carrick, who arrived at the club from Tottenham in 2006, signed a new one-year deal at United in May and he insists it will be a “pleasure” to lead Jose Mourinho’s team next season.
“It feels great and it is such a huge honour to captain such a great club. 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,” He told club’s official website.
Carrick made 38 appearances last season, including 23 in the Premier League. But he didn’t start a league game until November and was a substitute for both the EFL Cup final and Europa League final.
