Former Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sent a message to Michael Carrick after the former Manchester United midfielder was appointed as caretaker boss.

Carrick, who formed part of Solskjaer’s backroom team at Old Trafford, will be in charge of our Champions League game against Villarreal on Tuesday.

In a message to Carrick, Solskjaer told MUTV: “As I’ve said to them this morning as well, trust yourselves, you know we’re better than this. 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 [Carrick] is going to be in charge. Michael, I have the utmost respect [for], 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.”
