Fergie: Carrick Having Best Season

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says that midfielder Michael Carrick is having his best ever season at the club.

The former West Ham United midfielder has made 25 appearances for the Red Devils this season, scoring once and creating four goals.

The England international has often been criticised for his failure to dictate things in the middle of the park, but he has been a key figure in United's charge this term.

"I think he's been magnificent," Sir Alex said of Carrick on the club's official website.

"It's his best-ever season at the club and he's commanding that position. He's doing absolutely brilliantly.

"Even when he came on against West Ham (in the 1-0 win in the FA Cup replay at Old Trafford), he helped ease us through the last 20 minutes. Good players do that. He came on and settled us down."

Carrick is now set to face another of his former sides, Tottenham Hotspur, in a league match on Sunday.
