Michael Carrick, who turns 32 at the end of the month and is about to start his eighth season at the club, has welcomed the responsibility that comes with being a more experienced player at the club.
“The responsibility changes a little bit as you get older,” said Carrick. “It is an experience thing. The longer you play and more games you have, then the experience comes. The younger boys sometimes look for a bit of guidance or help in dealing with certain situations. I have certainly done that in the past with Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville. It is part of the continuity and traditions we try to keep at the club. I am one of the older ones now. It is not something that bothers me.”
