Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick admits manager Sir Alex Ferguson was lost for words after they relinquished the title to Chelsea on the final game of last season.
The England midfielder says Ferguson was lost for words after Chelsea were crowned champions but is determined to make up for it by reclaiming the title this season.
"It was just empty really," Carrick told the Daily Mirror. "You're just sitting there and don't know what to do with yourself, thinking what might have been and what we might have done better. It wasn't a nice feeling and it's hard to explain.
"I don't think the manager said a great deal after the game. There's not really a lot you can say at that time. No-one feels good and at that time you just want next season to start so you can repair the damage."
