Carrick: Rangnick had no influence on Man Utd vs Chelsea

The German tactician is on the verge of being Manchester United’s interim manager after the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Ralf Rangnick

did not have an input on

Manchester United

’s selection and strategies in their 1-1 draw with


, according to

Michel Carrick

, the caretaker manager.

Jadon Sancho

scored the opener for Manchester United notwithstanding their only three shots in the entire game and they tried to hold on for that one point after a Jorginho penalty leveled the game with Chelsea.

Ralf Rangnick, a mentor of

Thomas Tuchel

, is on the verge of joining the club as an interim boss and replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but Carrick insisted that the German did not have any input on his own approach over the weekend.


It is not the case, no,"

the former United midfielder told

 BBC Sport

 when quizzed whether his likely successor influenced his decisions throughout the game.

"[I'm] slightly disappointed to be honest. We went ahead, we came here to win. To go 1-0 up and have it taken away from you is disappointing.

"That intent and that hunger summed us up today. We knew it wasn't going to be free-flowing football at times but we were prepared to dig in. [Sancho] managed to score and I am pleased for him. It has been a decent couple of games."

Carrick believes the point was bittersweet and he would have been next to former boss and friend Solskjaer, adding:

"It is mixed feelings because I shouldn't be here if things had gone as we wanted. I felt like we lost out on it today because two wins would have been better."

Although the Norwegian tactician contributed to the rehabilitation of the club’s environment in Jose Mourinho’s tenure, his failure this season cost him greatly.

United are hoping that his replacement can deliver better results like that of Tuchel’s when he arrived at Chelsea.
