It's the same knee that required surgery during the 2015 offseason and has caused him to miss a handful of games this season. Boston inbounded the ball to Rozier, who took a long 2-pointer that bounced off the near side of the rim.

He added: "It's kind of been sorted out, but we're still talking about it so there is nothing to totally confirm yet. But it's looking likely, yeah". He still hopes to play a part in the run-in after recovering fully from a heart problem earlier in the season. "I've been training hard and we'll see what happens for the rest of the season", said Carrick.

During his time at Old Trafford he has won a whole host of major honours including five Premier League titles, the FA Cup, three League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League while in 2013 he was named the club's Player of the Season. "There were 2 or 3 times when I wondered whether it was worth still playing, but I soon got over that".

During his tenure at United the Newcastle-born midfielder has scored 24 goals and has already been given a testimonial by the club, which took place last June.

"I wanted to finish on my own terms so I was determined to get back fit".
