Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick praises the club's "amazing" fanbase in Asia.

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has described the club's fanbase in Asia as "amazing".

The Red Devils travel to the Far East next month to play a number of pre-season fixtures ahead of the Premier League campaign.

"It's crazy," Carrick told the club's official website. "One of the reasons I enjoy going there is just to see the reaction of the fans.

"It can take you back a little bit sometimes – even though they live a long way from Manchester the reaction the people give us is amazing."

United begin the defence of their league title at Swansea City on August 17.
