Arguably one of the most underrated footballers in the Premier League, Michael Carrick has returned to Manchester United training today.
Manchester United posted an Instagram picture above, to announce the news and there are a few things that stand out.
How often have Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick trained together in recent seasons?
And, is that David Moyes smiling?!
This is a major boost for the Premier League champions and the picture above came with the following tag line:
“Festive preparations: Michael Carrick is back in training for #mufc and could make his Reds return over Christmas.”
Showing his current standing at Old Trafford, the majority of the comments on the Instagram post are overwhelmingly positive.
With Marouane Fellaini out for six weeks and Tom Cleverley struggling to impress, we will likely see Carrick at Norwich on Saturday, with perhaps an outing on the Manchester United bench for the game at Hull on Boxing Day.
