Lots of the players have credited City’s last minute title win for the reason we have run away with the title this season, determined to win our trophy back.
Last night, Michael Carrick spoke about this desire when receiving his Players’ Player of the Year award.
“We had to win it,” he said. “Last year was hard to take for everyone, especially with it going to that lot over the road. It was tough and we always wanted to bounce back. I’m proud of the boys but it all comes from the manager. You don’t just play for this club – you live for this club once you’re here. The manager drives home the work ethic and always tells us don’t be afraid to work hard and enjoy yourself. That’s what we do.”
