Carrick is backing new signings to bring success.



Manchester United midfield marshal Michael Carrick is keen on securing titles with the Reds this season as he backs new signings to bring success to Old Trafford. Louis van Gaal's side secured a 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday with Sergio Romero, Matteo Darmian, Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Memphis Depay all making their competitive debuts for the Red Devils. And, England international Carrick - who moved from White Hart Lane to Manchester back in 2006 - spoke about how he has been helping the new comers to settle at the club. "You obviously get to know them, speak to them and make them feel comfortable but I think it is a general thing among our squad," the United vice-captain told United Review, as Manutd.com quoted. "It is a friendly bunch of lads and the boys have settled in quickly. One of the things, when you do have a new signing, is finding them a home, finding them an apartment, a house, and things like that. "So I have just been helping them, telling them about the areas, the restaurants, where to go, where not to go and all that type of thing." When asked how much quality midfielders Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger add to the squad, Carrick said: "Well, we all know about them. Morgan has been at Southampton for a number of years and has been a very good player in the Premier League. "Over the last three or four years, he has had some really great performances and we have all seen that. Basti is slightly different, he is new to England, but at the same time we all know exactly what he does and what he is all about. "He has had an incredible career so far and he is going to have a big say in this team and this squad going forward." The 34-year-old has won five Premier League titles since he joined the Reds but he still craves for more silverware under Van Gaal. "I wouldn’t say hungrier, because every year when I have been here we have been desperate to win something and to win the league," he said. "That hasn't changed, whether we have won it or not, to be honest. Every season, we have started the same and gone again. Regardless of whether you won it or not, you start from scratch and go again. One thing we have always done when we have won something is look at the next one and I think that is a real strength in how we have achieved what we have. "Having the two years, that is gone now. When we haven’t been serious contenders and challenging is frustrating. Now is the time for us to get right back up there." Thinkfootballideas [@Thinkfballideas].
