All you need to know about Carrick's autobiography

Tuesday 04 September 2018 15:00

Manchester United legend Michael Carrick is set to release his autobiography on 28 October.

Entitled ‘Between The Lines’, in association with Bonnier Books UK, the club legend invites readers to experience the camaraderie and desire to succeed inside the Old Trafford dressing room.

Carrick will also provide an insight into how it feels to walk out onto the pitch alongside some of the biggest names in modern football, from Paul Scholes to Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba. 

All of the book’s profits will be donated to the Michael Carrick Foundation, which was set up in 2017 and provides financial support to community services that give underprivileged children living in the North and North East better opportunities.
“This is a story of my life,” says Carrick, who is now among Jose Mourinho’s coaching staff at Old Trafford. “From growing up in Wallsend, dreaming of becoming a footballer, and going on to win the Champions League with Manchester United and play for England in the World Cup. I played for some of the greatest managers, as well as with and against the best footballers in the world. 

“I experienced extremes in emotions, some amazing moments and some very dark periods. I dealt with the challenge of finding a balance between the huge pressure of having to perform at the very highest level in the public eye with the day-to-day responsibilities of being a husband and simply daddy. Now my playing days are over, it’s time to share my story, the real story.”
