Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed former United star, Michael Carrick, to one day become manager of the club.
Carrick, is currently at Middlesbrough and led them to the Championship playoffs this season after they finished in fourth place.
Speaking to The Athletic about his former assistant the Norwegian said,
“I cannot see him not being the Manchester United manager.”
“At United, I’d sometimes see Michael talk to the players. Some of these were ex-team-mates of his which isn’t easy, but he had an authority about him.”
“I am 100 per cent sure that Michael will be the manager of Manchester United if he wants to be.”
Solskjaer was sacked by Manchester United in 2021 with Carrick briefly taking over the reigns.
The Englishman 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.
