I’m Not Desperate To Become A Manager, Says Carrick

Published

on

Michael Carrick has said that he is “not desperate to become a manager”, after stepping aside at Manchester United for Ralf Rangnick.

The 40-year-old has been in charge of the Red Devils for their last two matches against Villarreal and Chelsea, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacked in the aftermath of the 4-1 loss at Watford last month.

Carrick again led the team against Arsenal on Thursday night , and Rangnick is expected to be in position for Sunday’s clash with Crystal Palace, having agreed to become the club’s new interim head coach.

The former midfielder announced he is leaving the club after the game against the Gunners , and he has revealed that he is “not desperate to become a manager”.

“It certainly hasn’t put me off but, at the same time, I’m not desperate to become a manager. I’m realistic,” Carrick told reporters. “The experience has definitely helped me from the lows and sadness, the first feelings of Ole leaving, having to adapt and get through the games.

“It has been a challenge but one I have enjoyed. You are never sure until you are put in a certain role what you might be good at or not good at. That’s life experience. You’ve got to go through it to learn from it. I’ve certainly learned a lot this week.”

Carrick has worked under both Jose Mourinho and Solskjaer during his coaching career at Old Trafford.

AFCON 2021: Ola Aina, Okoye Responsible For Super Eagles Loss To Tunisia, Says Okocha

Published

on

Former Super Eagles captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, has blamed two players for the elimination of Nigeria from the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon by Tunisia.

Okocha said Super Eagles goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye and right-back, Ola Aina, should be held responsible for Tunisia’s match-winning goal against Augustine Eguavoen’s men.

Recall that Tunisia had last Sunday sent the Super Eagles packing from the AFCON in the Round of 16, thanks to Youssef Msakni’s second-half goal.

But Okocha believes Okoye should have saved Msakni’s long-range shot, while Aina would have fouled the Tunisia player before he took the shot.

“You expect when things go the wrong way that the goalkeeper might save the day but I thought he went a bit early to his right side and then it was difficult for him to adjust and make that save,” Okocha told SuperSport.

“It was a well taken shot there by the Tunisian and luckily for them that decided the game.”

On Aina, Okocha added: “You buy a foul, do something, stop the momentum of the game and let your players recover, but he made it easier for them.”

Former Super Eagles’ Chief Coach, Christian Chukwu, has urged the Super Eagles to move on with future national assignments after crashing out of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

“It is clear that our AFCON trophy chase is over. Let us come home, take stock and plan for our world cup qualifying encounter with Ghana.

“Judging from my personal experience as a player and coach, the boys brought in their best and did their best in the AFCON competition.

“They fought gallantly in each match they played.

“I am not happy with the red card given to Iwobi in the last match played by the Super Eagles as it should be a mere warning. He did not deserve a card at all,” he said.
