Michael Carrick is back training with the main squad of Manchester United after successfully undergoing an operation on his Achilles heel. The 32 years old midfielder is still expected to be out from the playing grounds for another 5 weeks but his recovery is going just as planned which is good news for the played that has recently agreed a new contract extension with the Old Trafford club.
His light training is increasing the speed of his recovery as he has the chance to play with some of his teammates and catch up with how the squad is doing.
Carrick said: ‘I’d love to carry on playing as long as possible at this club.
‘It’s a fantastic club and I’ve had great times here. I feel good at the moment. I’ve just turned 32, so I’ve got a bit of time yet.’
Having to challenge against the likes of Wayne Rooney and Van Persie, the Mexican Javier Hernandez is becoming more and more a less influential key player for Manchester United and they might even consider offloading him in order to snatch a player for their fairly aged defensive positions.
The Premier League has already progressed with 11 matches having been played but Javier Hernandez only being able to make 4 appearances and scoring 1 goal in this season, he is not the same player who rescued matches and points for Manchester United as he did some years ago.
The partnership of Rooney with Van Persie is edging out the place for the Mexican forward who might be seeing his way out of ‘’The Theatre of Dreams’’ by the winter transfer window unless he wants to continue being in the sidelines for the majority of the season.
