Man Utd captain Carrick says heart concerns over

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick says he's available to the end of the season.

The Geordie has confirmed he will retire this summer.

Recalling the heart problem that afflicted him in September, Carrick said: "I had a problem during the Burton game during the second-half.

“I had a few tests after that and the same problem came back on the Sunday of that week in training.

"I had the procedure the following week. It took a little while to get over.

“There were some times there, two or three days, when I wondered whether I would carry on playing or not, is it worth it or not?

"But that quickly passed and I got back fit. I wanted to finish on my own terms, so I was determined to get back fit.

"I've been training hard and we'll see what happens for the rest of the season."
