Michael Carrick is a professional footballer, currently Captain for Manchester United.
Michael began his career at West Ham United in 1997 where he won the FA Youth Cup in 1999. After two loan spells at Swindon Town and Birmingham City, Michael established himself in the Hammers first team in the 2000-01 season, going on to make over 150 appearances for the club. In 2004, Michael secured a move to London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, where he made 75 appearances in two years. In 2006, Manchester United came calling, paying £18 million to Spurs for Michael’s services, where he has remained ever since.
Michael’s honours at United are plentiful, not only is he captain but he’s also been involved in five Premier League winners’ medals along with victory against Chelsea in the 2008 Champions League final and the 2010 League cup. To add to that, Michael was awarded a 2017 testimonial to mark his 11 years at the club and at the request of him, all monies raised were distributed to his chosen charities through the newly-created Michael Carrick Foundation.
