Jose Mourinho Does Not Rule out Michael Carrick for the Campaign

Submitted by content on Mon, 10/30/2017 - 09:11

Jose Mourinho claims that Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick still has a role to play at the club, despite not featuring prominently this season.


The former Tottenham star was named as the club’s captain after the departure of Wayne Rooney at the start of the season. However, he has not been able to enjoy even a single minute of action since being given this role. Even though he has made it to the bench on a few occasions, Carrick has never been utilised by the manager. However, this could change in the midweek action when Manchester United take on Burton Albion in the League Cup.

Speaking ahead of the game, Mourinho has dismissed suggestions that Carrick is no longer part of the regular first-team setup at the club. The Portuguese manager says that the experience and the quality provided by the 36-year-old will be vital, as he prepares for his first competitive match of the season.

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick says that the fringe players at the club need to be patient in order to be able to secure regular first-team football under Jose Mourinho.


The Portuguese manager is widely known for not placing faith in the youngsters. Instead, he always tries to go for the experienced players in the transfer market. This attitude has once again been reflected in the summer, as United have signed Nemanja Matic from Chelsea for a mammoth £ 40 million despite being 29-year-old player. Mkhitaryan is the other player over 26 signed by United since the appointment of Jose Mourinho.

Back in the time Klopp and Mourinho were operating in different leagues, they were kind of buddies. Now, well they still claim to be buddies, but, the difference is that they now don’t mind dishing out a few taunts to each other when they are overseeing the first teams of two rival clubs in the same league.

Some time back, Klopp had said that a few coaches around him believe only in spending cash and bagging the superstars, but, he does not have the same ideology. Klopp was smart enough not to name Mourinho while he took that jab, but, one had to be very, very dumb not to understand whom he was talking about and which superstar he was pointing towards.
