Gary Neville sends message to Man United fans about midfielder
Gary Neville explains to Manchester United fans just how much Michael Carrick loves the club
Gary Neville has underlined Michael Carrick’s commitment to Manchester United and says the midfielder truly “loves” the club.
The veteran midfielder is set to enjoy a testimonial game at Old Trafford this weekend to mark his 10-year spell at the club.
The 35-year-old has been a reliable figure in the Manchester United team this season under Jose Mourinho and has been rewarded with a new contract to keep him at the club until next summer.
Neville and Carrick won multiple trophies together at Manchester United during their glittering careers under Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.
And the former Manchester United defender has lifted the lid on Carrick’s demeanour behind the scenes at Old Trafford.
Red Devils legend Neville is quoted as saying by the Daily Express: “What people may not understand is the quiet, introverted passion that he holds for Manchester United.
“When we won leagues, Michael would be the one singing the most and going home last from the parties.
“The one that would look the happiest and most joyous behind the scenes at having won a trophy.
“On the pitch, in front of the crowds, he’d maintain his composure, but behind the scenes he showed how much he loved the club.
“Believe me, he absolutely loves United.”
Carrick helped Manchester United secure Europa League glory this season as they booked their place in the group stage of next season’s Champions League.
