Michael Carrick played for one of the best teams in the world, Manchester United, during one of their most dominant periods.

As such it is not too surprising that he has some pretty good options when it comes to picking the best player he's played with and the toughest opponent he's faced.

“I always say Scholesy because he was right next to me and, as a partnership, he was fantastic to play with. We had some incredible players, amazing, but I always go back to Scholesy."

And when it came to toughest opponent Carrick had to stick with the midfield and picked Clarence Seedorf, although he gave a hat tip to Lionel Messi.

“Messi is up there but Seedorf when he played for Milan. However, that Barcelona midfield of Busquets, Iniesta, Xavi with Messi… It doesn’t get much better than that as a group.”
