Arsene Wenger has admitted he regrets not signing Michael Carrick for Arsenal.
The Manchester United star celebrated 11 years at Old Trafford with a testimonial this week.
Wenger has missed out on signing many a player over the year and Carrick appears to be one of them that hurt the most.
“I give Michael my deepest congratulations for his testimonial,” Wenger told Arsenal.com.
“I think he deserves it hugely.
“I would say personally I’m an admirer of his career, of his quality. One of my regrets is never having had him as a player because I think he was one of the greatest players in English football.
“I believe as well that he did not always get the reward and the tribute, the recognition he deserved.
“But I’m an admirer of Michael and I wish him all the best for the future.”
