Michael Carrick named as new Manchester United captain

Entering his 12th season with the team, the veteran midfielder takes over the armband. Reports that first emerged last week have now been confirmed: Michael Carrick is the new captain of Manchester United. Following the departure of Wayne Rooney - who had worn the armband for the previous three seasons - Carrick was clearly next in line for the captaincy on grounds of seniority.

Who should be the next captain of Manchester United?

With Rooney gone, there is no obvious candidate to take over the armband. Michael Carrick is reportedly set to be named as the next Manchester United captain, with the people’s choice Ander Herrera named as vice-captain. Carrick may be the sensible choice, but sensible is boring. Our writers made alternative picks for the captaincy. Marouane Fellaini Photo by Stu Forster/ We still can’t believe this actually happened. All footballing captains fall between two militaristic stereotypes: the General and the Lieutenant.
