The formal England and Manchester United central midfielder Michael Carrick has given up his role as first-team coach after the last night’s victory against Arsenal. The game ended with a scoreline of 3-2 with United just clinching the win in the second half. Despite the arrival of the new manager Ralf Rangnick, Michael Carrick was been in the dug-out against Gunners, as the German professional didn’t receive the work permit. But a few hours before kick-off, Ralf was been permitted to successfully take as Manchester United’s Interim manager role for the 2021/22 season. With this announcement, it is confirmed that Ralf Rangnick will be in the dug-out when the Red Devils face Crystal Palace this weekend.
But above all else, a genuine Manchester United legend.
Thank you, Michael ❤️#MUFC

However, the Interim’s interim manager Michael Carrick was in charge of the Arsenal’s game and Ralf was in the stands watching him manage his last game for United. It was not a convincing victory but it lifted the team and set the mood right for the players before the arrival of the new manager. The former English midfielder changed the side a bit from their trip to Stamford Bridge last Sunday. The changes proved to be good as Diogo Dalot who was in for Wan-Bissaka had a thumping game against the in-form gunners. Looking at the stats of Michael Carrick as a manager, he had a great time with the lads as he didn’t lose a single game.

In his three games as manager, he managed to win 2 and draw 1 against the Premier League leaders Chelsea. After another club legend, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked, Carrick took the responsibility and the United board can say that he did his job precisely. Ronaldo’s brace and Bruno Fernandes’ first-half goal helped United win and reach 7th in the table with 21 points. After the match, Carrick bowed to fans in Old Trafford and left the first team coaching with an amazing campaign.
