Carrick has often been lumped with the ‘underrated’ tag by many fans as despite winning four titles in six years at the club some supporters still criticised the West Ham academy product.
A string of top performances this campaign have meant that even Carrick’s detractors have struggled to criticise the man who’s been at the heart of the Reds midfield for practically every game.
Manchester United’s official club website reports Sir Alex stating of Carrick:
“I think he’s been magnificent,”
“It’s his best-ever season at the club and he’s commanding that position. He’s doing absolutely brilliantly.”
“Even when he came on against West Ham, he helped ease us through the last 20 minutes. Good players do that. He came on and settled us down.”
Many United fans who’ve witnessed Carrick win the midfield battles with Chieck Tiote, Yaya Toure and Steven Gerrard this season will no doubt agree with the manager’s assesment.
he deserved a lot more..he has massive quality..just weird why fans can’t see that
Carrick has been terrific but its only useful if we win the title. The game against Spurs is massive and we will need Carrick to be at his best. I thiink he is forming a good partnership alongside Tom Cleverley now. I hope Cleverley can continue to grow and score more goals, but Carrick is supporting him really well.
I do have to say that seeing Paul Pogba play for Juventus is getting harder and harder. The lad broke my heart leaving but he is proving to be a proper talent. I saw the two goals he scored tonight and they were both cracking.
