'We are hungry for more' – Carrick issues warning to title rivals

The England midfielder, who has won the Premier League five times, also credited Sir Alex Ferguson’s winning mentality with helping the Red Devils secure the league crown

Michael Carrick has warned Manchester United’s rivals that his team-mates are eager for more success after regaining the Premier League title.

The midfielder, who is a nominee for this season’s PFA Player of the Year award, has been a key figure in United’s march to their 20th league title, and revealed that he and his team-mates are already targeting further silverware next term.

“I definitely want more. The season is not over yet, we haven’t even got the trophy. But when we come back next year, we will be as hungry as ever,” Carrick told reporters.

“I said before I came here that if I won a league that would have meant everything to me.

“Strange as it seemed, as soon as I won that first title it left me hungry for more. The satisfaction of winning is such a good feeling you want it again and again, and you get hungrier to win it again.”

Carrick also praised Sir Alex Ferguson’s managerial style, and believes the 71-year-old’s attitude has been vital to United’s success this season.

“The manager drives that attitude and it rubs off on the players. To be honest it happens quite quickly. If it doesn’t you are not going to be successful here,” Carrick said.

“When I arrived, I tried to copy the example of the senior players. As I get older, I try to set an example for the younger boys.”
