Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has named veteran midfielder Michael Carrick as Wayne Rooney’s successor for the upcoming campaign.

Talking to United’s TV channel, Carrick said that he was delighted to be given the opportunity to lead the team and also gave some insight to what type of leader he may be.

"I feel great, it's such a huge honour to captain such a great club," Carrick told MUTV.

"Obviously it's my 12th year here now, I came as a 25-year-old and I never thought I could be here this long and achieve so much.

"I'll try to lead the boys and guide the young boys in some ways. It's a nice thing to be (captain) and it's a real pleasure. I came to this club as a footballer and I'm now a huge fan. I've grown to love the club over the years and to be in this position is very special to me.

"I'll just be myself, you can't change, it's wrong to suddenly get a role and start shouting and screaming at everyone and telling them what to do. I'm not like that, I'll speak when I need to speak but I'm quite laid-back and chilled out. I'll try and lead by example."

Carrick has won five Premier League titles, three League Cups, one FA Cup, the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Champions League during his time in Manchester.
