Munich service was 'powerful & emotional'
Manchester United club captain Michael Carrick feels the special ceremony at Old Trafford to mark 60 years since the Munich Air Disaster was very fitting.
Carrick spoke to MUTV after a highly emotional event and talked about how special it was for everyone concerned.
“It was very fitting, a beautiful service - powerful and emotional,” he admitted.
“For me, it was emotional sitting next to Sir Bobby [Charlton] and trying to come to terms with what he's been through and what was going through his mind. It was tough but a pleasure to be part of it and as I said I thought it was very fitting.
”When I came to the club I was aware of it [the disaster], I'd heard the stories and my Dad had told me about it, but it wasn't until I came to the club that you have that feeling of what it means to everyone here and how important it is.
“Today was very powerful and for the younger lads and for the lads who haven't been at the club too long it's huge,” he added.
“It's great that everyone could be here together today because we're all in it together, it's what makes this great club so special. It was such a tragic event and a very sad event, but it's commemorated in such a great way and that carries on year after year and always will.”
