Michael Carrick has confirmed he will retire from football at the end of the season and is likely to join José Mourinho's coaching staff at Manchester United.

"There comes a time when as much as you don't like it, it's time to stop playing football", Carrick told reporters.

"It's fine, it's something you've got to accept so that is where I'm at".

Carrick went on to confirm that a coaching role at United was "looking likely" as he plans for life without playing professional football for the first time in nearly 20 years.

Carrick underwent a treatment for irregular heart rhythm a year ago after he complained of feeling uneasy in Manchester United's clash against Burton in the Carabao Cup.

The former England midfielder reckons this is the stage United should be on each season and he said: "Yeah, without a doubt".

He is ruthless in his pursuit of the quarterback, often times executing cheap shots on the vulnerable opposing signal caller. Though he was never the dominant pass rusher the Dolphins expected to be, accruing 15.5 sacks in three years with the team.

"But we are back in the knockout stages where it really counts and you get that extra spicy feeling". We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing to totally confirm as yet. "That's where I'm at", he said.

On whether he still hopes to play a part in the run-in after recovering fully from a heart problem earlier in the season: "Obviously, I had the problem in the Burton game, when it started during the second half, and then had a few tests after that".

"I'm clear now, it took a bit of time to get over".

United sealed a 2-1 win over their arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford in the Premier League clash on Saturday. "I am trying to help a lot more because I understand where I am at", he concluded.

He signed for United in 2006 from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006 and has so far made 463 appearances for the club while scoring 24 goals across competitions.

"I need to keep myself fit and ready".
