Michael Carrick has revealed today that once upon a time he dreamed of just winning any trophy but since joining United has been spoilt by success.
In his three seasons with the club he has won thee league titles, the European Cup, and the FIFA World Club Cup. On Sunday, he has the opportunity to add the League Cup to his collection.
“I used to dream about winning a trophy and I was lucky enough to win the Premier League in my first year,” said Carrick. “That was great and before I might have settled for it, relaxed and thought, ‘That’s me’. But pretty much straight afterwards, before we went away in the summer, we lost the FA Cup final. It made me wanted to win something else to put that right. Ever since then, as soon as I have won something, I have wanted more. Winning is a great feeling but the desire to achieve extra is the thing that drives you on.”
