Paul Scholes did not support having Carrick in charge as he was part of the Norwegian’s backroom staff and the caretaker manager revealed that while he is enjoying his role at United, it has been a difficult period.


I have enjoyed [managing United]. It's not been an easy few days for anyone at the club,"

Carrick told

BT Sport


"That result feels like it's for Ole and I can't get away from that. But we had a job to do and when I was there, things needed to be taken care of and I was happy to do it, and thankfully it all went to plan."

Carrick admitted that he is certain the Red Devils would get to the next stage of the competition.


We came here to win the game. I believed we would, we were ready for it tonight,"

Carrick added.

"It wasn't an easy game, they're a good team. Those who don't watch them that much won't see it but they're a good team. I thought the boys dug in tonight and showed a bit of everything.

"Let's be honest, I don't think we could have hoped to come out here and play pretty football from the word go. When you've suffered results-wise and you're not in a great vein of form individually and as a team then it's not easy to come out and let everything click. In some ways it was the best way to win for me, we showed some character and dug in, showed some fight.

"We got back together again and the subs made the impact. The boys gave everything."
