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.

UCL: Chelsea Will Be Difficult To Overcome In Milan, Says Kaka

Published

on

Real Madrid and AC Milan’s former midfielder, Kaka has hailed ‘very consistent’ Chelsea following their defeat of AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Brazilian, a former AC Milan player, admitted the Blues ‘deserved’ to beat the Italian side.

It was Chelsea’s first win in the Champions League under Potter, thanks to goals from Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James.

The Italians will likely need to beat Graham Potter’s men in the reverse fixture next week to stand any chance of reaching the last 16.

“Chelsea deserved that result, said Kaka.

“I think they have a very consistent game they controlled the game the whole time. They didn’t create many opportunities but they took advantage of the opportunities they had.

“Most of them [chances] conceded by Milan and we were talking about the absence of the players and it’s important to keep the players that couldn’t play tonight but for Milan, it was a poor game.
