Carrick admits he cannot wait to get this season’s final few matches out of the way — so he can do it all again next season.
He said: “When I signed in 2006 I said that winning the league once would mean everything to me.
“But you win it once and you want a second. It just keeps snowballing after that. Sitting here now I am just as hungry for the next one.
“I’m proud of what I’ve achieved and what we’ve achieved but hopefully there’s more to come.
“It’s special enough just to win each one but when it has been taken away from you, to get it back in the fashion we have...
“The way last season ended was tough for everyone. There’s a lot of satisfaction at this achievement.”
