Michael Carrick, who enjoyed great form for Manchester United last season, claims that he still believes he can improve.
“Hopefully I’m a better player now than I was a couple of years ago,” he said. “I feel I have improved and I’m hoping to still improve. I’ve just turned 31 and the peak time in players’ careers seems to be a little bit later so hopefully that carries on and I’ve still got the best years ahead of me. Because of the way we look after ourselves, the peak years of a player nowadays is nudging a little bit further on. I look at people like Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs and they are still playing great football in their late 30s so that gives me enough inspiration.”
