Michael Carrick has praised the Red Devils for their policy of raising youth talent.

Manchester United won 3-1 against Brighton in their last Premier League outing. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed it as their best performance of the season. The Red Devils are finally finding their lost form, and Michael Carrick has expressed his delight at his team.

Michael Carrick, who spent twelve years of his career with United as a player, has claimed that the young players have woken up the fan in him.

“It was nice to see,” said Carrick in a report by Standard.

“I think as a fan – never mind as a coach or part of the staff – to see the younger lads coming in with a freedom and a smile and the excitement of attacking football and feel the energy in the ground – I just enjoyed sitting back and watching it.”

“It’s part of the history and traditions of this club. It lives on.

“It’s kind of the perfect position at the moment for the group that we’ve got. It’s to understand what it takes, the ups and downs that life, not just football, can bring that you’ve got to overcome,” Michael Carrick told.

“To be able to get to the top and stay at the top are different things. The sacrifices you’ve got to make.
