Michael Carrick QUITS Man Utd just minutes after Arsenal win as Ralf Rangnick takes over as interim boss

MICHAEL CARRICK has sensationally quit Manchester United - just minutes after guiding them to victory over Arsenal.

The former midfielder turned interim boss has left Old Trafford altogether rather than take a backseat to new manager Ralf Rangnick.

Man Utd had just beaten Arsenal 3-2 at Old Trafford when the club announced the shock decision.

Carrick, 40, joined Man Utd as a player in 2006 and spent 12 years as a player at Old Trafford.

He won five Premier Leagues and a Champions League before stepping into a coaching role in 2018.

Carrick has served as interim manager since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's sacking but will be replaced by Rangnick.

And he decided to end his 15-year stay at the club altogether rather than stay on as a coach under the new interim boss.

Carrick said: "My time at this great club will always rank as the best years of my career.

"When I first signed over 15 years ago, I never in my wildest dreams could have imagined winning so many trophies and I will certainly never forget the fantastic memories both as a player and as a member of the coaching team.

“However, after a lot of thought and deliberation, I have decided that now is the right time for me to leave the club.

"I want to place on record my thanks to all of the players and a special mention goes to the backroom staff, working long hours with such a great group of people has been a real pleasure and I have made some long-lasting friendships."
