Carrick Targets Strong Pre-Season

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick believes that a productive pre-season will be crucial in their bid to defend the English Premier League title.

The Red Devils come into the new campaign with a new manager in David Moyes, following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson at the end of last term.

Carrick, who had arguably his best season in a United shirt last season, says that a solid pre-season campaign can make all of the difference.

“A good pre-season gives you that base you need to keep going throughout the season,” Carrick told the club's official website.

“If you miss pre-season, you have to play catch-up. Every player is different - some can come back [from the summer break] and get straight back into it but others take a bit more time.

“I think it’s a vital part of the year – it’s important to get through pre-season and steer clear of injuries and be ready for the games at the start of the campaign.”
