5 Premier League Clubs That Could Be Michael Carrick’s New Port After Splitting With Manchester United

Sports

Michael Carrick has left Manchester United after the arrival of Ralf Rangnick who will be the interim manager of the Red Devils until the end of the season. Carrick’s departure from Old Trafford made a number of clubs in the Premier League become a new port for him.

Michael Carrick was actually believed to be the interim manager of Manchester United after the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The 40-year-old coach had led the Red Devils in three games.

Manchester United’s achievement under Michael Carrick in these three matches is quite good. Two wins and a draw became a positive trend for the Red Devils under Carrick.

After parting ways with Manchester United, Michael Carrick will probably have no trouble finding a new job. He has the opportunity to replace a number of clubs who are struggling in the Premier League.

Here are five clubs that might be able to sign Michael Carrick in the near future:

Leicester City
Leicester City is having a difficult season. The Foxes are currently in 11th place in the Premier League.

Leicester’s poor form could affect Brendan Rodgers’ future. The Scottish coach is likely to lose his position.

Michael Carrick could take over from Rodgers at the King Power Stadium. Leicester have a good squad to push into the top flight.

Everton
Everton appointed Rafael Benitez as a tactician at the start of this season. However, the Spanish coach is still not able to boost the performance of The Toffees.

Everton have often had poor results in the Premier League this season. Richarlison and colleagues now occupy the 12th position in the standings.

Benitez is currently under immense pressure and could lose his job in the near future. Michael Carrick could be an option to replace Benitez.

Burnley
Burnley’s performance under Sean Dyche this season has not been good. They are now mired in 18th place in the Premier League standings.

Bunrley have only won one of 14 matches played in the Premier League. In addition, the Clarets also won seven draws and six defeats.

Michael Carrick could replace Dyche at Burnley. However, the former Manchester United midfielder has a tough task to keep Burnley in the Premier League.

Southampton
Southampton are also having a bad season in the Premier League. The Saints are only able to win three of 15 matches in the league.

These poor results make Southampton now slumped in 16th place. They collected 16 points and six points adrift of the red zone.

Nottingham Forest
After a poor start to the season, Nottingham Forest decided to sack Chris Houghton. They then appointed Steve Cooper as his successor.

However, the club’s current situation has not improved. The Reds are now 13th in the Championship after collecting 28 points after 21 games.

Had Cooper been fired at a later date, Michael Carrick might have filled the vacant post. He will be a breath of fresh air for the club, which has won the Champions League twice.
