Manchester United players have reacted to Michael Carrick’s resignation as Manchester United first-team coach on Thursday night.
Carrick resigned after helping Man United beat Arsenal 3-2 in the Premier League at Old Trafford.
The game marked the conclusion of Carrick’s spell as Man United caretaker manager following the appointment of Ralf Rangnick as the club’s new interim manager.
Reacting to Carrick’s resignation, Man United captain, Harry Maguire, wrote on Instagram: “That one was for you @carras16. Thanks for everything, legend.”
On his part, Jesse Lingard said, “Pleasure playing with you @carras16 made some great memories. Best of luck in the future legend.”
Similarly, Midfielder Scott McTominay said: “It’s hard to put into words how much you have helped me. What a footballer & what an amazing man off the pitch. That win tonight was for you, Carras. Wishing you the very best – LEGEND.”
In his post-match interview, Diogo Dalot told MUTV: We are going to have time to (get to) know him (Rangnick) and he is going to have time to get to know us. We will start work tomorrow. Thank you to Carrick as well. He is leaving us today. Thank you for everything he has done for this club, not just as a player but as a manager as well now. Good luck to him.”
Also, Bruno Fernandes said: “Really happy to celebrate my 100th appearance for this club with a win and with our fans. Hopefully, many more games to come. I also wanted to say thank you to Michael Carrick, a great Manchester United legend.”
Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville, added to the tribute and tweeted: “I’ve just seen the Michael Carrick news. Feels like the right call to get out and furrow his own path. A great player and a fantastic person. Congratulations on a great Manchester United career.”
Man United will now begin a new era under Ralf Rangnick, who will be in charge at Old Trafford for the remainder of the 2021-2022 season.
