Man Utd's Carrick a fan of Villa captain Barry

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick admits he's a big fan of Aston Villa captain Gareth Barry.

Ahead of this weekend's clash, Carrick told "Gaz is a very good player.

"He's got a great left foot and it's pretty reliable, so we have to be careful when he's on the ball and not give away too many free kicks in the final third.

"He's played in a few different positions during his career. I think he started at centre half and then played at left back before moving onto the left wing.

"Now he's settled into the central midfield role and developed a good partnership with Nigel Reo-Coker. Those two work really well together."
