Michael Carrick confident Manchester United squad will adapt Rangnick's style

Michael Carrick has backed the Manchester United squad after the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following a defeat to Watford. Recent football news flash that Manchester United is close to appointing German coach Ralf Rangnick. Carrick being the interim coach for the given time has upheld the squad the will adapt Rangnick’s high-pressing style if and when the German takes over at Old Trafford.

Michael Carrick took the managerial responsibilities at Manchester United on a temporary basis and led the team to win over Villarreal in the Champions League game. For the next match, United will travel to Stamford Bridge to play against Chelsea where Carrick will be in charge, he remained tight-lipped about Rangnick’s imminent arrival as interim manager until the end of the season at a news conference on Friday but believes the squad will be able to adjust to any coach who comes in.

“Speculation and reports is speculation and reports,” said Carrick, when asked if he had been kept in the loop about Rangnick’s appointment. “As I’m sitting here now I’m preparing the team for the game [against Chelsea]. I haven’t got any more news to share with you on that front.”

Asked specifically if Rangnick could be successful in trying to implement his pressing style with United’s crop of players, Carrick said: “There’s a lot of different styles in football. There’s a group of players here, whoever comes in, they can adapt. There are some really good people and human beings in the squad and I’m sure they’ll look forward to what’s ahead.”

“We’ve got two or three different little issues that we’re waiting to see,” Carrick said. “It’s never ideal, you want a full squad to pick from but there are one or two we’re waiting on. Luke took a bang and was concussed and got another bang at Watford. Fred twisted his ankle but managed to carry on [against Villarreal]. Pretty incredible, helping us see the game out. We’ll see on that. There are one or two others as well. We’ll be strong travelling down [to Chelsea].”
