Manchester United's Michael Carrick gets trolled by his own fans over his pace

Carrick Slow

He's never been the quickest has he, but somehow he's got slower!

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has made a name for himself over the past 15 years for having a pretty great eye for a pass.

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. 

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.
