Michael Carrick Comments on His Appointment at Old Trafford

Manchester United is temporarily under the charge of Michael Carrick, who’s taken over the squad. Carrick is United’s interim manager following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s departure (the football news), and until they find a new coach. Now, Michael Carrick comments on his appointment at Old Trafford as their head coach, although its only for the interim.

Carrick has talked to the press for the first time ahead of United’s Champions League 5th round clash against Villarreal.

Some transfer rumours cite former Real Madrid coach Zidane Zinedine as the favourite to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at United.

But Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino is also keen on succeeding the Norwegian at Old Trafford (football transfer news).

In the meantime, though, Michael Carrick is leading Manchester United, being the interim manager at Old Trafford.

“It’s an emotional time for everyone at club, I worked with Ole for three years and I’ve known him for a lot longer,” Carrick said, BBC reports.

“To see him lose his job was tough for me and a lot of people at the club.

“We understand results mean everything. I want to say a massive thank you. I learned an awful lot. It was a sad day and I wish Ole all the best.

“In terms of what I’ve been told, my mindset is I’m preparing the team for tomorrow night and I’ll give it my best.

“This club has been my life for an awful long time now. I’m not too sure [how long it will be for] but that’s not on my mind right now.It’s a big game for us. I will go about my job as I know, trust myself and my staff, the players and look forward to the game.”

“It’s a challenge, of course it is,” Carrick continued. “The initial reaction yesterday, coming to terms with the situation, but quite quickly you have to focus. There’s a responsibility here. I don’t take that lightly in any way. I’m just throwing myself into doing everything I can.

“Of course it’s a limited time but it’s a challenge I’m relishing at the moment,” he added.
