Manchester United stars arrive at hotel ahead of Premier League season finale, with Michael Carrick preparing for his last-ever match

The England man, 36, will captain United one last time against Watford as he prepares to embark on a potential coaching career at Old Trafford.

Carrick has been part of United since joining from Tottenham in 2006 and has made 463 appearances in all competitions.

Now, United – with stars including Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard also seen at the hotel today – are focusing on giving him an almighty farewell.

Fellow midfielder Ander Herrera claimed: “We’re going to enjoy him as a coach and I think he’s the right person to be an assistant as he’s very calm and balanced.

“If you have one guy next to you like that, it really helps. I think one of the qualities that can make him a good manager in the future is that he is very balanced.


"In the good moments he is not crazy happy and in the bad moments he keeps his head and tries to give the right advice to the team.

“That’s why I think he’s going to be a great manager in the future.

"It’s all about having a beautiful day and saying goodbye to Michael Carrick the player in the best way possible.

"Let’s try to make it a beautiful day for him. He’s a legend of the club and then, one minute after the game, let’s think about the final.”

Tyneside-born Carrick enjoyed a successful start at West Ham from where he made 158 appearances between 1998 and 2004.

He then moved for £2.75million to bitter rivals Spurs where he made 73 appearances before an £18.6m switch to Old Trafford in July 2006.

In all, he won 34 caps after making his debut against Mexico in 2001. His final game for the Three Lions was in a 2015 friendly with Spain.
