Although Carrick admits it will be strange to play under a new boss, who will undoubtedly have his own ways of working, he is enthusiastic to undertake the task after the summer break.
"I think you have to be excited," Michael explained. "We have to take on the challenge and it is obviously a new challenge. It is going to be a slightly different feeling coming back to pre-season and not really knowing what is going to happen.
"We know we have got the tour and where we are going, but in terms of day to day things, it is going to change. How much change we'll have to wait and see because there is not too much wrong, but we have a new manager with new opinions. David Moyes is his own man and I am really looking forward to working with him and moving forward both as a team and as individuals."
