Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has said that one of his players is set to retire at the end of the season.
Micheal Carrick has not played for the ”Red Devils” since September after experiencing an irregular heart rhythm during a League Cup clash.
The 36-year-old has returned to training following his treatment but he has not played for the first team.
Mourinho revealed Carrick will take up the club’s offer for first-team coaching role at the end of the season.
“The club would be very happy for him to do that. I would be very happy also for him to do that,” Mourinho said, according to BBC Sport.
“I expect him to join,” he added.
“[He had] a few months without even training so now he is in his second week of training with the team. He is a very important player for us.
“I think it is a good decision for the team and a good decision for him to finish playing football and not injured or with some problem.”//Actuantes//
