Michael Carrick has now won the Premier League five times in the seven years he has played for the club. Whilst some may wonder whether the magic wears off, Carrick insists it feels more special every time.
“It is an incredible achievement,” he said. “Every year we win it just gets more special. The sense of achievement gets greater, for the manager and the club,” he said. “This was a special one this year, the way we ended last year. We could have gone two ways and let it affect us and faded away. But we bounced back. We are proud of all the lads for showing their character. We were written off at the start of the season, as we are most seasons, but we have managed to come out on top. It is a special feeling.”
