He's never been the quickest has he, but somehow he's got slower!
Ask any Red Devils fan and they will confirm that Carrick really is the master of a sideways pass to a team-mate and ball retention.
One thing he has never really been known for though is his pace. In fact, we reckon he's had the pace of a 33-year-old for pretty much all of his career.
So when Carrick took to Twitter to share a story of how he managed to miss a train while running to catch it, you can imagine that the midfielder got well and truly trolled over his speed by fans.
When you rush to a platform to see the train pulling out the station and a few people sniggering It's ok only an hour till the next one— Michael Carrick (@carras16) January 20, 2016
@carras16 You’ve never been the quickest to be fair fella :-)— Chris Webb (@chrisadwebb) January 20, 2016
Well played United fans, you even got a response from Carrick who after getting flooded with tweets about just how slow he is, tweeted this:
Regarding my last tweet there's been far too many comments about my pace. Some very harsh I must say.— Michael Carrick (@carras16) January 20, 2016
United are currently fifth in the Premier League table but after their 1-0 victory against Liverpool last weekend they will be hoping to surge back into the top four and hopefully even challenge for the title in 2016, with Carrick likely to have a significant impact between now and May.
