Michael Carrick to leave Manchester United with immediate effect after a period of babysitting – .


Michael Carrick has Manchester United with immediate effect after stepping down as first-team coach following his stint as interim manager.
Carrick’s third and final game as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s temporary successor ended in a 3-2 win over Arsenal, before interim manager Ralf Rangnick took the lead.

The 40-year-old has ended a long association with United that began in 2006 and saw him make 464 appearances, winning five Premier League titles and the Champions League as a player, among other accolades.

Carrick joined Jose Mourinho’s coaching staff when he retired in 2018, then stayed under Solskjaer as an assistant coach before taking on the goalkeeper role when he left last month.

The former England international won his first game against Villarreal, securing United’s passage to the knockout stages of the Champions League, then drew 1-1 with Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday.

“My time at this great club will always be considered the best years of my career,” said Carrick.

“When I first signed over 15 years ago, in my wildest dreams I could never have imagined winning so many trophies and I will certainly never forget the fantastic memories as a player and member of the coaching staff.

“However, after much thought and deliberation, I have decided that the time has come for me to leave the club.

“I want to thank all the players and a special mention to the backroom staff, working long hours with such a great group of people has been a real pleasure and I have made some lasting friendships.

“I am and always will be a Manchester United fan and will be in as many matches as possible.

“I 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. “
