Manchester United has confirmed Michael Carrick to be in charge of the United and Arsenal games despite their new interim head coach Ralf Rangnick. On Thursday, the club revealed that Carrick would remain in caretaker charge for the Premier League game against Arsenal at Old Trafford.
Michael Carrick was Appointed to Take Charge of United game with Arsenal
Manchester United had hoped that new interim boss Ralf Rangnick would be in the dugout for Thursday’s game, but the German coach has been made to wait on a work permit. The 63-year-old was appointed on Monday and will be in charge until the end of the season. Before taking up a consultancy role, helping Man United select their next permanent manager, he will watch from the stands.
Michael Carrick has overseen two matches as caretaker, the latest being a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. The first game was against Villarreal, which ended 2-0 in favour of Manchester United in the Champions League knockout stages.
The former Old Trafford midfielder is expected to stick around once Rangnick takes charge, but his coaching setup has not been confirmed.
