He is one of the most decorated English footballers of all time and is best known for his 12-year playing career with Manchester United, whom he also captained.
Carrick was a central midfielder, but he was used as an emergency centre-back under Alex Ferguson, David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and José Mourinho. His playing style was grounded in his passing ability.
Michael Carrick Backroom staff
Michael Carrick says technical director Darren Fletcher has proved a great help to him in his stint as caretaker manager of Manchester United.
Speaking ahead of Thursday night’s Premier League fixture against Arsenal, the temporary boss also paid tribute to the club’s backroom staff.
Carrick stepped up from his role as first-team coach after the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer less than a fortnight ago.
The former midfielder has overseen an important victory in Spain against Villarreal and a draw against league leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
With Ralf Rangnick confirmed as United’s new interim manager, Carrick is to step back into his old role soon, but remains in charge for Thursday’s game as Rangnick waits to complete the work visa process.
Asked about Fletcher’s role over the last week or so, Carrick said his old team-mate – the pair played in midfield together for many years at United – has been a key colleague.
“Obviously, we go way back,” Carrick said.
“We fought many battles on the pitch together and get on really well. He’s been a big support. Of course, we’ve all changed roles to an extent this week, Fletch has been on the bench, kind of the role that I was doing previously. It’s worked very well.
”We think the same way, we’ve got similar kind of mentalities approaching the game. It’s worked really well.“
The coaching staff has had very little time to get used to the new, temporary set-up, and it’s required the hard work of all involved to get United through a difficult week with two good results.
