Carrick takes first managerial job since leaving Man Utd

Middlesbrough’s new manager, Michael Carrick, has been named.

The former Manchester United midfielder takes over for Chris Wilder, who was fired on October 3.

Wilder was depressed after five losses in the first 11 league games of the season.

Carrick will be joined as first-team coach by Jonathan Woodgate, with a further backroom appointment expected in the near future.

Boro chairman Steve Gibson says Carrick is the “perfect fit” for the club, who are just a point above the relegation zone in the Championship.

“We had identified a number of potentials for the vacancy who we spoke with, and were impressed by all, but Michael was the outstanding candidate,” he said.
