Ferguson: Carrick is key to season

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson believes Michael Carrick holds the key to Manchester United's season.

Although Ferguson confirmed an interest in Robin van Persie in Cape Town earlier this evening, most United fans believe their midfield is most in need of strengthening. Ferguson does not disagree, however, the Scot believes that, in Carrick, he has one of the most effective players in the Premier League.

And with the anticipated reinforcements still to arrive, Ferguson is pinning his hopes on the 31-year-old, saying: "Carrick is the key to it. He denies it but he has always had slow starts (to a season)."
