Carrick eager for United stay

4 October 2013 10:46

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is eager to prolong his stay at Old Trafford by signing a new contract.

Carrick has established himself as an integral part of United’s team since his arrival from Tottenham in 2006, racking up 329 appearances and a host of honours, including five Premier League titles and a UEFA Champions League crown.


The 32-year-old’s current deal with the club expires at the end of the season, but he has expressed his desire to put pen to paper on an extension in the near future.


"I'd love to carry on playing as long as possible at this club," the England international told Sky Sports News.

"It's a fantastic club, I've had great times here. I feel good at the moment, I’ve just turned 32 so I’ve got a bit of time yet."

United have made a stuttering start to their Premier League title defence this term, collecting just seven points from their opening six games under new boss David Moyes.


However, while admitting that he is not sure why the champions have begun the campaign indifferently, Carrick has no doubt that they will bounce back.

"Sometimes it is hard to put your finger on things," the former West Ham man said.


"There are probably a number of reasons. If you don't do enough things well in a game, then you lose it.


"You have periods, whether it is through seasons or through years, when things don't quite go right.


"You just have to face it and find a way to get through it.


"You can't hide and go under. You have to respond. That is what we will do."
