Man Utd’s Daley Blind Backs Michael Carrick to Become a Top Manager

Man Utd’s Daley Blind Backs Michael Carrick to Become a Top Manager

Manchester United defender Daley Blind has backed his team-mate Michael Carrick to become a top manager one day.

Carrick, now 35, has made just one Premier League appearance this season and is yet to start a game so far, despite signing a new one-year contract when Jose Mourinho arrived in the summer.

But the former England international has helped form the backbone of several formidable United sides, and according to Blind, Carrick’s thoughtful and considered approach to keeping the ball in midfield is mirrored by his manner in the dressing room:

Given his slightly reserved and quite demeanour, Carrick might seem like a slightly surprising name for Blind to put forward but we reckon it could be a shrewd shout.

This looks like being Carrick’s last season at Old Trafford – so could a career in coaching be beckoning? What do you think?
