Carrick shares Man United memories, wishes Sir Alex well (4:17)

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick thanks his teammates, manager and family following his final game at Old Trafford. (4:17)

After his 464th and final appearance in a Manchester United shirt, Michael Carrick made it official by bringing to life an oft-uttered cliche.

Carrick will take his place among Jose Mourinho's coaching staff after a career that saw him win five Premier League titles, as well as the Champions League, Europa Cup FA Cup and three League Cups.

Fair play to a fine player.
