Manchester United captain Michael Carrick has confirmed he is to retire at the end of the season.

Jose Mourinho has already suggested the 36-year-old will be hanging up his boots, calling time on a marvellous playing career, but the Reds midfielder has now clarified this will be the case.

Carrick is to be offered a place on the manager's coaching staff but he would only say that is a "likely" option at the moment.

"I think it's pretty much already been said, to be honest with you," he replied when asked whether he was retiring. "There comes a time when, as much as you like or don't like it, your body tells you it's time to stop playing football. That's pretty much where I'm at, which is fine. It's something you have to accept. That's where I'm at."

When asked whether he would be joining Jose's backroom team, he said: "Yes. It's kind of been sorted out. We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing totally confirmed as yet. But it's looking likely, yes."

The classy playmaker arrived at the club from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2006 and was awarded a testimonial last year, in recognition of his magnificent service to the Reds. He still hopes to play a part in the run-in after recovering fully from a heart problem earlier in the season.

"Obviously, I had the problem in the Burton game, when it started during the second half, and then had a few tests after that," he revealed at a press conference at Old Trafford previewing the Sevilla game on Tuesday in the Champions League.

"The same problem came back on the Sunday of that week in training, so then I had the procedure the following week, which I went through and now it's totally fine and I'm clear. It took a little bit of time to get over but there were some times when, for two or three days, I was thinking 'am I going to carry on playing or not?' or 'is it kind of worth it or not?' but that quickly passed.

"I got back fit and I wanted to finish on my own terms really. At least I could decide and not be forced because of that, so I was determined to get back fit. I understood after getting back fit that I wouldn't be playing as many games as perhaps I might have done, but that's something that I understood. I've just been training hard and trying to keep fit and have managed to play a few games so far and we'll see what happens towards the end of the season."

曼聯官方宣佈,36歲老將、前三冠王功臣卡域克將於本賽季後退役。

自2006年加盟起,卡域克至今為曼聯披甲463場比賽。在英格蘭國家隊,他亦錄得34次出賽。

在本季,卡域克僅為曼聯上陣四場比賽。自發現心律不正的問題後,卡域克亦絕跡賽場一後頗長時間。領隊摩連奴在一月曾說,如卡域克願意作為球隊後勤人員繼續貢獻球隊,將會非常感激。因此,卡域克退役的消息更不絕於耳。

加盟曼聯12年,卡域克共交出24個入球,協助球隊取得五次英超冠軍、三次英聯盃,歐聯、歐霸、英足盃及世界冠軍球會盃各一次。雖然角色上不是最耀眼的一員,速度、制空力均偏弱,但這位綠葉球員一直默默以體力及意志付出,在中場拚命攔截,成就其他球員完成任務。

前曼聯、英格蘭名將,現球評人加利尼維利對卡域克有如此看法:
引用Scholes and Carrick together was peaceful. It was like going into a bar and hearing a piano playing. It's relaxing. Listening to some good rock is good and you like that too but sometimes it's nice to listen to a piano. Carrick's a piano."
史高斯與卡域克一同在場上,就能給予人和諧的感覺,就像走進酒吧聽見琴聲一樣愉快。即使喜歡聽激情的搖滾樂,有時候也會想聽鋼琴的奏樂。卡域克的球風就是那種格調。

在曼聯經歷最輝煌的費格遜皇朝,又伴隨後來幾位領隊的低迷,卡域克已是為曼聯付出半生。在此感激他為球壇帶來的貢獻,祝卡域克退役生活能夠精彩,繼續貢獻球壇!
