Manchester United have announced that Michael Carrick will be in charge of the club’s Premier League game against Arsenal in the position of caretaker manager.
United had yesterday made known the appointment of Ralf Rangnick as interim manager until the end of the season.
The Germain will, however, not be able to immediately take charge of the club due to the regulatory process around a work visa.
This leaves Carrick in charge, a former club player who supervised the 2-0 Champions League win against Villareal and the 1-1 draw at Chelsea after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sacking.
“Michael has communicated this to players and staff at Carrington in a busy week for the club,” United said on their website on Tuesday.
United welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford on Thursday followed by Crystal Palace on Sunday.
