Footballers and celebrities in general take a lot of abuse on social media, but Michael Carrick’s hilarious response to one troll has proven how it can backfire on instigators.
Following Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Everton on Saturday the ex-Tottenham midfielder tweeted a picture with the words “What a feeling…. Amazing scenes“.
This encouraged one Twitter troll to reply,
@carras16 for all your qualities, you still move like a 70 year old man with arthritis

But Michael Carrick wasn’t fazed by the comment and was quick to respond with,
I’d say that’s very harsh on the 70 year old man myself. ???? https://t.co/dyRJE8rafi
