WATCH: Man United Captain Michael Carrick Spotted Starting Chants In The Away Stand
Manchester United captain Michael Carrick could hardly be more popular with the Red Devils faithful, but he may just be now after being spotted starting chants in the away end at Burnley on Saturday.
Carrick, 36, is set to retire at the end of the season and take up a coaching role with the club. The Geordie-born midfielder has barely featured all season due to an irregular heart rhythm.
But rather than play golf, he took his son to Turf Moor and got in and amongst it with the away fans. He even saw his side win 1-0, thanks to an Anthony Martial strike.
Not only was he spotted, but he didn’t hide himself either, getting involved with and even starting some chants.
The official club Twitter account posted a video of Carrick singing with his arms aloft, conducting those around him.
United are still 12 points behind league leaders Manchester City, though, after their 3-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday night.
