Michael Carrick's return following a heart procedure will give the Manchester United dressing room a boost, according to Nemanja Matic.
Carrick has undergone a routine procedure to correct an irregular heart rhythm.
It has limited the midfielder to just one appearance this season, but the 36-year-old, who was named club captain in the summer, is now back in training.
"Michael is very important for this club and I am sure he will help us this season," Matic told Inside United. "Him coming back from the injury is very important for the changing room, but he's also a great player.
"You know everything about him. I don't need to talk about him because he's a great player, but I know him as a man too and I know he is a great man. So I am also happy to see him training again."
