Carrick departs Manchester United as Rangnick begins interim reign

Manchester United’s stand-in manager, Michael Carrick has announced his departure from the club.

New interim manager, Ralf Rangnick took charge of his first press conference today as he hopes to resuscitate the club before he leaves in June.

Carrick led his former side to a draw against Chelsea last week before leading them out in yesterday’s league victory over Arsenal at the Theater.

Michael Carrick said: “My time at this great club will always rank as the best years of my career. When I first signed over 15 years ago, I never in my wildest dreams could have imagined winning so many trophies and I will certainly never forget the fantastic memories both as a player and as a member of the coaching team.

“However, after a lot of thought and deliberation, I have decided that now is the right time for me to leave the club. I want to place on record my thanks to all of the players and a special mention goes to the backroom staff, working long hours with such a great group of people has been a real pleasure and I have made some long-lasting friendships.

“I am, and will always be, a Manchester United fan and will come to as many matches as possible. I would like to wish Ralf, the staff, the players and the fans all the best for the future and I look forward to being in the stands and supporting the boys as a fan.”

During his playing career, Michael played 464 games for Manchester United between 2006 and 2018, winning five Premier League titles, the FA Cup, two League Cups, the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Europa League and the FIFA Club World Cup.
