Premier League

Carrick explains Manchester United biggest challenge

Michael Carrick says dealing with the uncertainty of when Premier League football will return is the biggest challenge for the Manchester United squad at present.

This Friday marks exactly two months since the Reds played their last domestic game and assistant-coach Carrick revealed that the players are stepping up their training regime in the hopes of a return to football.

Despite that, with no concrete plans in place for the Premier League to commence again, he acknowledges it is tough to make preparations for an as-yet unspecified date.

“That’s the biggest challenge: not really having a return date,” the former midfielder said.

"That's why we've tried to gradually increase training and we're just giving ourselves the best chance to be ready, if, and when we start."

"It's the same as everyone. It's not just about us and the players; it's about everyone, in every walk of life. Everyone has got jobs to go back to and not knowing the next thing is the biggest issue. You can't plan and you're not sure what's next."

"It can be difficult. We're just trying to make the best of it and the lads have been great with everything we've asked them to do. It's not easy and they've had to take the responsibility themselves and train on their own."
