" He (Carrick) brings a lot of experience but also a lot of composure. He can transfer my philosophy on to the pitch.'"
London, Dec 20 - Manchester United mid-fielder Michael Carrick has replaced Darren Fletcher as the club's vice-captain.

The 33-year-old Carrick, who joined United from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006, takes over as Wayne Rooney's deputy from Fletcher who was handed the role at the start of the season, reports dailymail.co.uk.

Scottish mid-fielder Fletcher has struggled for first-team opportunities, playing just 49 minutes since the end of August.

I have three captains. You have a sequence: Wayne Rooney is one, Carrick is two, Fletcher three, manager Louis van Gaal said.

He (Carrick) brings a lot of experience but also a lot of composure. He can transfer my philosophy on to the pitch.'

Third-placed United travel to Aston Villa in the English Premier League (EPL) Saturday.
