‘Carrick could manage United’ – Berbatov

Dimitar Berbatov has also claimed that Michael Carrick could become Manchester United manager after succeeding at Middlesborough.

He told Betfair: “Carrick was very calm on and off the pitch. He was underrated as a player. He was underrated because of the low profile he kept. He wasn’t really out there in the public eye and maybe because of this that’s why people don’t mention him enough.

“I like him because he was very calm, like myself. He was someone that knew how to crack a joke. I benefited from his passing on the pitch and I scored goals because of this.

“He’s someone that knew exactly how to play football, how to pass the ball, when to pass the ball… as a midfielder that’s so important. He was good at defending as well. It’s a pity he didn’t get more caps for England.

“He’s someone from my generation that went into management. I said the same thing about Wayne Rooney before, Carrick is slowly building his legacy as a manager, trying to get used to the expectations and someday I’m sure he would like to be Man United manager. Until that day, he’s working as hard as possible to prove himself.

“What better way to prove yourself than beating big teams? It was a great win for his side against Chelsea, and they have another tough test against them next week. I hope they progress to the final.

“As long as he continues on that path then everything will be great, but managerial positions are very volatile – sometimes you’re in a job and other times you’re not. Good luck to him.”
