Michael Carrick spoke to OGS about interim job at Manchester United

Michael Carrick consulted Solskjaer about becoming interim manager at United.

The former United midfielder is temporarily in charge of the Red Devils for the time the club looks for a permanent solution.

Carrick’s reign started off with a 2-0 win against Villarreal thanks to goals by Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho in the dying minutes of the game.

‘It’s not an important result for me personally. It’s an important one for the players and the club,’ Carrick said when asked about Scholes’ criticism.

‘It’s an important result for the players, tonight is not about me by any stretch.

‘It’s obviously been an emotional few days. The first person I spoke to after Ed [Woodward] asked me to do this role was Ole, to almost see what he thought about it because I felt that was the right thing to do.

‘I have a responsibility to be here managing the team and I take great pride in that.

‘It wasn’t about me tonight though. It was about getting through [the group]. It was a massive game, when you get to this stage in the Champions League it can swing so easily both ways, so it was vital we came here and got the right result and we managed to do that so I’m delighted.’
