When asked about whether the Man United squad could adapt to a new style brought by an interim manager, Michael Carrick said: “You can get ideas across pretty quickly.
“I think history shows that. Sometimes it’s not the ideas but just a different voice or a freshness. History proves that, for whatever reason.
“Again, looking back at history, sometimes it works really well, sometimes not so well – that’s just the nature of life. We’ll see what happens in the days to come.”
“Listen, there’s a lot of different styles in football. There’s a good group of players here, so whoever comes in and whatever style he’s implementing, I’m sure they [the players] can adapt.
“There’s some real talent and some real good people, good human beings, within the squad. Yeah, I’m sure they’ll look forward to what’s ahead.”
Ralf Rangnick is expected to be confirmed as the new United manager in the next few days after striking an agreement with the club.
The German boss will be interim manager for six months, before taking up a ‘consultancy role’ within the club for 2 years.
It remains to be seen, however, whether he keeps Carrick or the rest of the coaching staff at United after taking up the role.
