The former England worldwide, 36, made the announcement at United's press conference on Monday to preview the Champions League last 16, second leg against Sevilla.

Manchester United veteran Carrick announced he would be hanging up his boots at the end of the season during the Red Devils' pre-match press conference ahead of tonight's Champions League showdown against Sevilla.

Former West Ham United and Tottenham midfielder Carrick has won five Premier League titles and the Champions League during his time with Man United, and was handed the captain's armband previous year following Wayne Rooney's departure.

They register one win on the road, but it was against a lowly Malaga side that can't get a win to save their lives at the moment. That means it is still all to play for at Old Trafford and leaves United open to the possibility of crashing out on away goals .

Carrick has played a limited role for United this season after undergoing a routine heart procedure following a League Cup tie with Burton in September.

He's earned that call-up due to his breakthrough at Manchester United, playing 17 times for Jose Mourinho so far this season.

"It's fine, it's something you've got to accept so that is where I'm at". We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing to totally confirm as yet.

Speaking yesterday, Carrick, per skysports.com, said: "I think it is quite refreshing to look at Scott and see how he deals with it".

"It started in the Burton game and then happened again in training", Carrick added, discussing his health problem. 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. "I am trying to help a lot more because I understand where I am at". "I wanted to finish on my own terms so I was determined to get back fit". Signed for £18 million, he has played 463 times for the Mancunians and also represented England 38 times, named in the Three Lions' squad to both Germany 2006 and South Africa 2010 FIFA World Cup tournaments but did not play a single minute.
