Current Manchester United coach Michael Carrick, who will supervise his team’s upcoming matches pending the appointment of a temporary coach until the end of the season, confirmed that his entire focus is on his team’s crucial match against Villarreal, Spain, at La Ceramica on Tuesday in the penultimate fifth round of the Champions League.
Carrick took over the job on Sunday, succeeding Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, knowing that the first worked as an assistant to the second, during his tenure over the last three years.
Carrick said on the eve of the match against the Spanish team: I received my assignment one day before, and the match comes one day after, and all I think about is tomorrow’s match (against Villarreal). Of course, this is a big challenge for me,” referring to the short period of time to prepare the team for a semi-decisive match. He added: We have another important game at the end of the week (against Chelsea), but we will discuss it when the time comes.
We have to win tomorrow’s match because the result is the most important for our fans. There is a responsibility when you defend the colors of this club that does not exist when you play for other clubs.
“The match against Villarreal is very important because it gives us the chance to qualify,” he added. On the possibility of staying in his position for a long time, especially since the club is looking for a temporary coach, according to what was announced in an official statement issued by him, Carrick, who was crowned champion in the ranks of Manchester United five times and European champion once, this matter is decided by the board of directors and I have absolutely nothing to do with it. .
He concluded: Will I continue in my position for a long time? I can’t answer this question that doesn’t concern me at all at the moment.
