Although Manchester United have an FA Cup final against Chelsea to come, Michael Carrick has probably played his final game for the club he joined from Tottenham Hotspur 12 years ago.
Having won every club honour the game has to offer with United, Carrick's spell with the club - by and large - has been synonymous with great success.
One of the successful penalty takers during United's Champions League final win in 2008, he spoke to the Old Trafford crowd this afternoon after United's 1-0 defeat of Watford.
While it was known that he would be retiring from football at the end of this season, the occasion of his final game has given many cause to let the former England international know what he has done for them.
What a man. On and off the pitch he is a really great guy who was fantastic to play with. @carras16 we will miss you. Have a great retirement.
He whispers in my ear 'I love this game' ! 🙈☺😂 pic.twitter.com/H23RtASYZY

@carras16 , amazing person and sensational player. One of the best central midfields I've ever seen. Merci for all you thought me, on and off the pitch. Enjoy your retirement, my friend! pic.twitter.com/uppsWLho1Q

Time files, but what a servant he has been for the club @carras16. Hardly broke a sweat on the pitch, always a step or two ahead of his opponents with his intelligence and understanding of the game. It’s Carrick you know... #mufc pic.twitter.com/RQr5HoaqV9

Perhaps most touching of all, however, was the tribute paid to him by Spanish teammate, Ander Herrera.
Having joined the club in 2014, Herrera praised Carrick for his "normality, for always being in the moment and most of all for you brilliant career."
Perhaps today's generation of football admires the extravagant; however, I admire you for you normality, for always being in the moment and most of all for you brilliant career. It has been an honor to play by your side and learn from you these past 4 seasons @carras16 pic.twitter.com/QfU1xD7QlC

United's in-house television channel MUTV also put together this compilation of people sending their memories and best wishes for Carrick.
