Michael Carrick steps down from role as Manchester United first-team coach with IMMEDIATE effect straight after guiding the club to victory over Arsenal in his last match as temporary manager

Asia's Tech News Daily

Michael Carrick has decided to leave Manchester United following his final game as temporary manager of the club.

The club confirmed the news in a statement on their official website, in the immediate aftermath of their 3-2 victory over Arsenal.

Carrick, who had held the role as first-team coach, was in temporary charge following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal last month.

With Ralf Rangnick appointed the new interim manager of the club until the end of the season, Carrick has decided to step down from his role. 

In United’s official statement, Carrick said: ‘My time at this great club will always rank as the best years of my career. 

‘When I first signed over 15 years ago, I never in my wildest dreams could have imagined winning so many trophies and I will certainly never forget the fantastic memories both as a player and as a member of the coaching team.

‘However, after a lot of thought and deliberation, I have decided that now is the right time for me to leave the club. 

‘I want to place on record my thanks to all of the players and a special mention goes to the backroom staff, working long hours with such a great group of people has been a real pleasure and I have made some long-lasting friendships.

‘I am, and will always be, a Manchester United fan and will come to as many matches as possible. 

‘I would like to wish Ralf, the staff, the players and the fans all the best for the future and I look forward to being in the stands and supporting the boys as a fan.’

Carrick has been with the club since his arrival from Tottenham as a player back in 2006.

As a member of the playing squad, he played 464 games, winning five Premier League titles, the Champions League, one FA Cup among other pieces of silverware.

Following his retirement in 2018, he joined the first team coaching staff at Old Trafford originally under Jose Mourinho.

He was kept on when Solskjaer was appointed as interim, then permanent manager.  

United endured a miserable start to the season which saw humiliating defeats to rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.

Carrick has been in temporary charge since United sacked Solskjaer following their 4-1 defeat to Watford. 

In his time in charge, United have won two games and drew one against league leaders Chelsea.

Carrick was expected to stay on with other members of Solskjaer’s staff including Kieran McKenna, under the helm of Rangnick.

So it comes somewhat as a surprise that the 40-year-old has decided to leave the club. 

Football Director, John Murtough commented: ‘While we are sad to see him go, we respect and understand Michael’s decision.

‘He will always be known as one of the finest midfielders in the history of Manchester United, and, more recently, as an excellent coach who has worked tirelessly under two managers to help develop the strong squad which Ralf will now take charge of.

‘We are grateful for the steady leadership Michael has shown through this period of managerial transition, and, while he is now stepping away from day-to-day involvement, he will always be welcome back as a legend of the club.’
