Sir Alex Ferguson: Carrick enjoying his best-ever season
Goal : Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says Michael Carrick is in the best form of his Old Trafford career.
The former West Ham midfielder came on in the second half against his old club in midweek and helped the Red Devils regain control of the match at a time when the Hammers were on top. Boosted by Carrick’s introduction, Manchester United successfully protected their first-half lead to win the FA Cup third round replay 1-0.
Now the 31-year-old faces another of his former sides when United travel to White Hart Lane, hoping to avenge their 3-2 defeat to Tottenham earlier this season at Old Trafford.
“I think he’s been magnificent,” Sir Alex said of Carrick on the club’s official website. “It’s his best-ever season at the club and he’s commanding that position. He’s doing absolutely brilliantly.
