Manchester United former midfield player, Michael Carrick, who gave is all on the field as once again availed himself as a humble servant of the club and has said that he is ready to act the role of interim manager for as long as he is needed, following the sacking of another club legend and manager of the club, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked as the Manchester United manager following a string of poor team performances and losses which has left the club in the 8th position of the league table and with only a win in their last 7 matches. A 4-1 loss to bottom side Watford at vicarage road served as the straw that broke the camel’s back as the club hierarchy decided to relieve Ole of his managerial duties and appoint Michael Carrick as an interim manager to lead the team till the end of the season when they would be expected to hire a permanent manager.
Michael Carrick will now have to lead team to the end of the season, an opportunity and challenge that he relishes and his first big test would be to take his team to Spain and get a result in a champions league game against Villarreal.
The ex-player and now interim manager is however in the dark as to how long he will be at post something he says does not bother him saying that his sole focus now is to prep the team in preparation for the champions league match against Villarreal.
“It’s been literally just over 24 hours since everything’s unfolded and the game is not much further away in terms of time, so that is my focus, all I am thinking about is the game tomorrow,” he said at a press conference.
“I’m ready to help the club for however long I’m needed. And then I’ll go back to my job when someone else takes the job. I’m really looking forward to today and preparing the players.”
“I’ll give it my best. Hopefully we get some good results.”
