Carrick deserves a new contract


Manchester United great Paul Scholes says the club should offer midfielder Michael Carrick a new contract.

The 35-year-old Carrick, who’s contract expires in the summer, has been a stabilising influence in United’s team this season. The Red Devils have lost only once with the former England international in the starting lineup.

However, Carrick has only been used sparingly by Jose Mourinho, placing into question a new deal for the former Tottenham and West Ham player.

Scholes told Goal:

“He’s definitely worth another year, Michael. He’s not a player who burns himself out in games, he’s more of a controlled player, he’s a fit lad but he always knows where to be on a football pitch.

“He’s always in the right place, he plays his position brilliantly and when he came into the team from October onwards there were something like 16, 17 or 18 games maybe where they didn’t lose.

“He had a big influence on people like Paul Pogba, he got the best out of him and Herrera. He’s just tailed off a little bit over the last couple of weeks, but I still think he’s got a part to play.”
