Former midfielder left Manchester United in December having taken short-term charge
Middlesbrough have appointed ex-Manchester United caretaker Michael Carrick as their new manager, the second-tier Championship club said on Monday as the former midfielder landed his first role as a permanent boss.
Carrick left United in December last year having taken short-term charge following the sacking of Norwegian manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The 41-year-old former England international replaces Chris Wilder who was sacked earlier this month when the club were in the bottom three.
Carrick said in a statement
“Middlesbrough was the first professional club I played for as a nine-year old boy, so it’s a very special feeling to be back here as a head coach,”.
