Manchester United caretaker boss Michael Carrick is confident new manager Ralf Rangnick won’t rip the team’s playing style.
The arrival of 63-year-old Rangnick, who has no previous Premier League experience and won his only major trophy in 2011 with Schalke, represents a big change for United who have spent the last three years promoting their former players Solskjaer, Carrick, Mike Phelan and Darren Fletcher to key positions.
“The club doesn’t change. It is still Manchester United,” said Carrick. “It still has a certain DNA running right through it.
“Expectations and responsibilities are the same, playing exciting football. We are here obviously to win first and foremost but in a certain way.
“If you look over history, there have been lots of different managers and players with different systems and ways, but there has always been this backbone to it of successful teams.
“As a club we are fully aware of that and that’s where we obviously need to be and I’m sure we will be there soon.”
