Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is looking to the future after Alex Ferguson’s era at the club came to an end on Sunday.

Carrick was involved in a sensational game that saw United surrender a three-goal lead with 10 minutes remaining to draw 5-5 with West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Normally the players would have received the infamous ‘hairdryer’ treatment from Ferguson, but Carrick spoke of a strange atmosphere in the changing rooms after the Scot’s record-breaking 1,500 game reign.
“It was a funny time in the dressing room because of the situation,” Carrick said.
“It is starting to sink in (that he is retiring) and we’ve had a couple of weeks to digest the news.
“We’re ready to move on. We’ve had a busy couple of weeks and there is a new challenge ahead for all of us to look forward to.
“We’ll have a nice rest in the summer and start again on July 3 when we report back for training.
“We’re looking forward to it. We’ve had enough time to digest the title celebrations, the news about the manager and (Paul) Scholes retiring. We have to move forward.
“We’ve thanked the manager for everything he’s done and he’s thanked us.”
Ferguson bowed out by claiming a 13th Premier League title, and will be replaced by compatriot David Moyes on July 1.
