The former Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has backed Michael Carrick ahead of Tuesday night’s UEFA Champions League game against Villarreal.

The former United striker, Solskjaer, was sacked yesterday following their 4-1 league defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road.

Carrick was appointed as the caretaker coach and should be in charge for at least tomorrow nights’ game against Villarreal.

Speaking during his farewell interview, an emotional Solskjaer said that Carrick is the man for the job.

“We’ve not been able to show it but go out, chest out, enjoy being a Man United player, Champions League, the biggest stage.

“If and when you win the game, you’re through to the next round, Michael is going to be in charge. “Michael, I have the utmost respect. I love Michael to bits.

“I’m becoming emotional now because he’s top. They’ll be fine. I’ll watch them and support them.”

Tuesday evening's game at Estadio de la Ceramica kicks off at 19:45.
