Michael Carrick has admitted he was not aware how restrictive his Achilles injury was until he had it fixed. After slipping out of the first-team reckoning at Manchester United at the end of last season, then enduring a disappointing World Cup campaign where he failed to get on the field for a single minute of competitive action, Carrick struggled to make an impact during the early weeks of the campaign.
