Manchester United captain Micheal Carrick has given explanations to fans about his absence.
The veteran midfielder made it known that he has an operation to solve an ‘irregular heart rhythm’.
Carrick made just one appearance so far this term for the red devils, which is the win over Burton Albion in the EFL Cup.
He has not featured for Jose Mourinho’s side since the League Cup game, and he was not even named in a matchday squad for any of Man United’s games in October, despite returning to training last month.
And while lots of fans are wondering what might be wrong with the Englishman, the 36-year-old has revealed that his absence is because he felt an ‘irregular heart rhythm’ during the League Cup game against Burton.
According to him, the situation forced him to undergo a procedure known as Cardiac Ablation.
Taking Instagram, the talented midfielder revealed that after the operation, he had to build up training steadily whilst being closely monitored.
He however assured the fans that he is now healthy and is back to training with the rest of his guys to build up his fitness and get back to contention for selection soon.
“I feel fine now. Thanks for your support” he said.
The veteran legend is expected to retire from playing football at the end of this season.
