Carrick Looks Forward To Spurs Match

Carrick Looks Forward To Spurs Match

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has told the 'Inside United' magazine that he can`t wait for his home debut, especially considering that it is against old club Tottenham Hotspur.

Injury knocked the former Spurs man out of the first league game at Old Trafford, and now the England midfielder is set to start against his former employer.

After such a quiet season start, Carrick will soon get enough action as United line-up Spurs, Celtic and then Arsenal in the coming week!

Carrick: 'To face your old team-mates is a great experience - you always want to come out on top. And then Arsenal, which is always such a huge game for this club. I can't wait.'

A hint perhaps as to why Carrick moved, he went on to mention that he was 'gutted' when Spurs missed out on Champions League, another reason (as if he didn't have enough?) to leave the club.

Manutd.com says £14million signing. This would be a perfect time to prove it Michael!!!!!

Yeah I must agree. Hopefully he won't feel the pressure. There will be alot of people looking at him. With a bit of luck the West Ham saga will take some of the attention away from Carrick V Spurs.

Well he actually admitted that he joined spurs so that he could move to Arsenal. So we must be a little bit important

If you like French players I suppose Arsenal are fine. Good young talent, just a shame it's not English! Oh and dont start about Walcott nobody really cares.

im glad he left spurs in general, he could never tackle to save his life and the team often had to play around him. now if spurs were to let zokora settle in by playing him more often, it would allow players like jenas and lennon to go further forward. however, as much as i rate spurs, id have to agree with salford red about davids.... also TheatreOfDreams his total transfer including other fees will add up to about 18.6 million. hes got a hell of alot to prove he's worth that much.
