Following the conclusion of his caretaker Managerial position, Michael Carrick has opted to resign as First Team Coach and leave the club.
The 40-year-old’s decision to step down came just minutes after he took charge of United’s 3-2 Premier League triumph over Arsenal at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
Michael Carrick also noted that technical director Darren Fletcher has been a huge assistance to him during his time as Manchester United’s caretaker manager.
Following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Carrick took over as first-team coach. The former midfielder oversaw a crucial victory over Villarreal in Spain and a stalemate against league leaders, Chelsea, at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Ralf Rangnick has been confirmed as United’s new temporary manager and will start work against Crystal Palace, Patrick Viera’s side.
Michael won five Premier League titles, the FA Cup, two League Cups, the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Europa League, and the FIFA Club World Cup with Manchester United between 2006 and 2018.
When he retired in 2018, he joined the First Team coaching staff and worked under Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
