Michael Carrick reveals best Manchester United player he played with


Manchester United captain, Michael Carrick has revealed the best Red Devils’ player he played with during his time at Old Trafford.

The 36-year-old is set for a sunny send-off when he calls time on his illustrious playing career after Sunday’s Premier League clash with Watford at Old Trafford.

Carrick has named Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes as the best player he played with.

The midfield maestro played over 450 games for United, helping the club win five Premier League titles and the Champions League.

“I’d have to say Scholesy because I just played so close to him, you know,” Carrick told reporters ahead of United clash with Watford.

“I’ve played with some world-class players, some of the best that’s played the game, but Scholesy was just something else.

“I still think I’m just fortunate to have seen him train every day and having the best seat in the house, stood next to him passing the ball and seeing what he could do with it.

“It was just outrageous how good he was.

“I could pick 10-15 players that I played with over the years — Ronaldo, Wazza [Rooney], Rio [Ferdinand], Giggsy, Gary Neville… [he was an] unbelievable full-back, unbelievable captain – but Scholesy just nicks it.”
