How Michael Carrick reacted to Man United win
Having took charge of a European elite club barely 48 hours before their next fixture, Carrick had this to say in a press conference. He said “It’s not an important result for me personally, it’s an Important result for the Club”.
“I have a great responsibility to be her, to manage a great team and I take pride in that. So, It wasn’t about me tonight, it was about getting through, you know if you get to this stage of the UCL you can swing easily to any side, so the win was vital actually”.
It was for Carrick to bring on Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford at last quarter of an hour as Manchester United took control of the game at that point and that led to the Goals.
However, Carrick was impressed with Jadon Sancho’s Performance and his goal. The Winger might be on for some quality playing time later on, who knows?
