Carrick Staying Patient

October 2, 2009

Michael Carrick, who is yet to perform this season, has said that he does not mind sitting on the bench. Carrick, who was I think the player of The year for Man Utd in 2007 after we won the league. He was the only signing fergie made, before the 2006/07 season started, and what a player he turned out be!

Last season he was also pretty good, but we are yet to see the best out of Carrick in the last 3 years. He did well against Wolfsburg scoring the winner, but is he Fit to wear the red shirt? I personally think he’s good and talented but when Hargreaves returns, I don’t see a place for him in the starting 11. With Scholes playing really good, some say fletcher is the new keane, and Hargreaves one of the best midfeilders in Europe if we can keep him fit, not to forget Anderson who is still young and plays really good.

So where is Carrick’s Spot? Well He recently said He is willing to take time and be patient;

Here’s what he said
“It’s been a little bit frustrating for me personally at the start of the season but you trust in the manager,” said Carrick, according to The Daily Mirror.

“But just because you sit out one or two games it doesn’t mean he’s fallen out with you or anything like that.

“It’s just a case of him looking at the long haul all the time and the fact that everyone has to be fresh. That’s how it is here and you have to understand that.

“The manager knows exactly what to do and what team to pick and who needs to play. He has to do that all season.

“I’m aware of that and of course I want to play every game, but you have to be patient.

“You look around the squad and the quality we have, and you have to realise that nobody is going to play every week.

“It was never a case of ‘what have I done wrong?’. I’ve been here long enough now to know how things work.

“I want to play every game, that’s my job as a professional footballer, but I’ve been in and out of the side.”

Having been picked for a rare start against Wolfsburg on Wednesday, Carrick duly repaid his manager’s faith by delivering the winner with a sweetly struck curler to make it 2-1.

However, the No.16 knows that Ferguson’s squad rotation system means that he could continue to miss games.

He continued: “I’ve scored against Wolfsburg and did alright, but I know I’ll be sitting out games again over the next few weeks. That’s how it is for everybody here.

“But we all trust the manager and the teams he picks. It works, so long as we’re successful at the end of the season, then everybody is happy.”
