Wayne Rooney has wished Michael Carrick all the best as the Manchester United midfielder prepares for a coaching role at Old Trafford. Carrick, 36, confirmed earlier this week that he plans to retire in the summer and admitted it’s ‘looking likely’ that he will accept Jose Mourinho’s offer to join United’s staff. The ex-England star, who revealed he had been struggling with an irregular heart rhythm in November, has only managed one appearance in the Premier League and four appearances in all competitions this term.

‘There comes a time when, as much as you like or don’t like it, your body tells you it’s time to stop playing football,’ Carrick said earlier this week. ‘That’s pretty much where I’m at, which is fine. It’s something you have to accept. That’s where I’m at.’

United legend Rooney, who completed a move to Everton last July, sent a classy message to his former team-mate on Twitter. ‘Good luck to my good friend Michael Carrick who is retiring at the end of the season,’ he posted. ‘Great teammate and one of the best I’ve played with. ‘Brilliant career and I’m sure he will be very successful in his new role as a coach.’

Carrick could feature against Sevilla on Tuesday night after recovering from his heart scare. ‘Obviously, I had the problem in the Burton game, when it started during the second half, and then had a few tests after that,’ he told the media ahead of tomorrow’s game. ‘The same problem came back on the Sunday of that week in training, so then I had the procedure the following week, which I went through and now it’s totally fine and I’m clear. ‘It took a little bit of time to get over but there were some times when, for two or three days, I was thinking “am I going to carry on playing or not?” or “is it kind of worth it or not?” but that quickly passed.
