Few would have Michael Carrick down as a central defender, although this is something that Sir Alex Ferguson is prepared to do this season if needed.


Carrick has been needed as a makeshift central defender during pre-season and with United short of central defenders Sir Alex has hinted that the midfielder could be deployed in such a role this season.


His qualities are better suited to a central midfield role but he also has the defensive capabilities to fill in if and when needed, although you wouldn’t want this as a regular thing would you? Not only as this isn’t his preferred position but also as it wouldn’t see the best of his abilities utilised by United.
