Carrick Doesn't Know Lean Years At United!

Carrick Doesn't Know Lean Years At United!

Signed for 14.6 million pounds, Michael Carrick had been labelled as too expensive and not good enough for Manchester United - or at least, we had been told, not what the club had needed.

Three years later Carrick's just finished celebrating his third league title and is now preparing for his second Champions League final. He's English, European and World champion and won a major trophy in every season he played here.

'The feeling of winning drives you,' he said.

'That feeling when you have been successful and you are going to lift the trophy becomes addictive.

'Nothing can replace that feeling. The buzz after Moscow last season was incredible.

'I would say if we do it again this year it would be even better, just because we have done it before and know how tough it is to win it.'


Carrick also eyes a place in the history books as he's all too aware what an achievement it would be to retain the European Cup.

'If we did the double again this year, it would be more special,' said the England midfielder.

'It was almost unbelievable to do it last year. To do it two years on the bounce would suggest we are a great team.

'Teams have won Champions Leagues in the past but if you do it alongside winning your domestic league, twice, it really suggests you have something good going.'
