Carrick grew up idolising Man Utd legend Robson

Manchester United's Geordie midfielder Michael Carrick admits growing up idolising Bryan Robson.

Like Carrick, Robson is also a native of the Northeast.

"He was a legend, yeah. Of course he was. I grew up as a Geordie, though - a Newcastle fan - so I didn't naturally take to Manchester United players. But Bryan was obviously a massive player for England as well so I think most football fans admired him," Carrick told manutd.com.
