Michael Carrick Has Resolved To Step Down As First Team Coach And Leave The Club Says Manchester United



Michael Carrick has resolved to step down as First Team Coach and leave the club following the conclusion of his reign as caretaker Manager.


Football Director, John Murtough, , said: “Michael leaves with the candid  thanks and best wishes of everyone at Manchester United after 15 years of remarkable service to the club as a player and as a coach. While we are not happy to see him go, we respect and understand Michael’s decision.


“He will always be known as one of the finest midfielders in the history of Manchester United, and, more lately, as an outstanding coach who has worked relentlessly under two managers to help develop the strong squad which Ralf will now take charge of.


“We are grateful for the dependable leadership Michael has shown through this period of managerial career, and, while he is now stepping away from day-to-day involvement, he will always be welcome back as a legend of the club.”


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


“However, after a lot of thought and consultations, I have concluded that now is the right time for me to leave the club. I want to place on record my appreciation 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.”


Carrick 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.


He joined the First Team coaching staff when he retired in 2018 and served under Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
