Former Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick says he suffers from depression two years after the red devils lost to Barcelona in the final table in the 2009 Champions League.

"It was my dream to be in a World Cup, but the truth is that I would not be there. I would be home," said the English international. Carrick alleges himself for the defeat in the Champions League in Rome and after he gave away the ball in the build-up to Barca's opening goal. In an interview, he said, "I beat myself over that goal,"

Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho surely has limited time to spend at Old Trafford. This is his third year at the helm, and there are clouds gathering over his long term future. Unlike Pep Guardiola, who has used the investments available to him to cement City as European contenders, Mourinho is still sorting out even the smallest of issues.

True, the club has sort of stabilized since he took over. Heck, they finished in second place last season. However the style of play has been continually despised by the fans. With United failing to lift any trophy last season, there were murmurs. This time the Portuguese tactician has to get it right, else his time could really be up.

Manchester United legend-turned-pundit Rio Ferdinand has heaped praise of summer signing Romelu Lukaku despite his poor form with the Red Devils of late. The Belgium international notched 11 goals in his first 10 appearances for the Mancunian giants, and he had to wait for another eight games before finding the scoresheet against Newcastle United last weekend.

In the lead up to the Brighton game, the United great spoke fondly about Lukaku, who he has labelled as an animal in the box, he told BT Sport: "Lukaku, when he’s on form, is an animal. He’s difficult to play against. If you get the right ball into him, he’s going to score goals. His record up until now, as a young player in the Premier League, has been nothing short of great."

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.

The experienced midfielder Michael Carrick has recently opted to pen a new 1 year contract extension with the Premier League club Manchester United as the veteran player believes that he can push through for at least another season which is a fairly impressive and surprising thing to see for a player who is 35 years old and is nearing the 36 year mark as his birthday is edging nearer.

On July 28, Michael Carrick will be 36 years old but age does not appear to be a factor for the English player who is actually a relatively regular first team player.
