United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes Carrick is having his best season in a red shirt and this week called the England midfielder’s form ‘absolutely brilliant’.
But Carrick told The Sun: “I’m happy with the way things are going, but I’m not getting carried away. People are saying nice things but I’m just doing the same things as I’ve done since I’ve been here.
“If that ends up as a good season for me, then great.
But it’s not so much my own form, it’s about winning things. We’re still going on three fronts and it’s a big few weeks for us — but I’m sure we’ll be saying that for the rest of the season.”
