It has been reported that Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is delighted with his England recall.
The 33 year old recently returned from injury in Sunday’s Manchester derby defeat and spoke with MUTV on Thursday about the call.
“It was good news,” Carrick said.
“Obviously, it was disappointing to miss out on the World Cup in the summer but that’s behind me now and, to be honest, I’m just happy to be fit and playing games at the minute.
“After being out for so long, it’s great to get back in the squad here, first and foremost, and be around that. Especially last week, to get on and have a first taste of action and then get the call, it’s been a good week.”
