The former United midfielder-turned-coach departed the club in December of last year, but he remains a keen observer of events at Old Trafford.
Michael Carrick has endorsed Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag, stating he believes the Dutchman can lead the club to success.
Carrick, a former Manchester United player who later became a key member of the coaching staff, has wished Ten Hag success and disclosed that he still goes to see his old team.
Carrick left Old Trafford in December, ending his brief stint as caretaker manager following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. After 15 years at United, Carrick’s decision meant an unexpected departure, but he claims he remains a fan at heart and has backed Solskjaer’s permanent replacement to succeed.
In an interview with Eurosport, he remarked of Ten Hag: “He’s an excellent coach. He’s done well at Ajax, but only time will tell. I sincerely hope they have a successful season.
“I know a lot of people there, and I still go to show my support. Everyone wants something right now. Whether it’s football or business, patience levels appear to be dwindling.
“I believe it can be either too high or too low. It’s not often that you find that happy medium when everyone is a little more realistic. Hopefully, they will have a prosperous season and seasons after that.”
Ten Hag guided the club to a third consecutive victory at Leicester City.
