Michael Carrick was named the interim coach of Manchester United. United started their campaign promisingly as they edged past their opponents. Unfortunately, the good days were numbered. The team suddenly began falling apart. The Red Devils also had the biggest signing of the year. They managed to bring back Cristiano Ronaldo to his old club. Despite all the positives, United failed to deliver.
As a result, the management decided to sack their regular manager. Ole Gunnar Solskjær was their manager at the start of the season. However, the dismal performance of the team got him sacked. The responsibility was vested upon Carrick to carry the team through. He took up the challenge at once and delivered. Carrick did have a fairly good run as the manager.
When Carrick took charge, the team was in tatters. He did a fairly great job in a very short span as a coach. He changed the mindset of the players and made them believe in themselves. Carrick installed a sense of urgency among the team. All his principles seem to have reaped rich dividends. Manchester United drew with arch-rivals, Chelsea. They beat Arsenal in their recent game 3-2 to make Carrick’s CV look even better. Let us know more about the story in detail below.
