Manchester United legends, Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand have agreed that the Red Devils should appoint the very best manager to coach the club.
The pair disclosed this following Man United’s Champions League 2-0 win over Villarreal on Tuesday night.
Recall that Man United sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and temporarily put Carrick to take charge of the first team.
Speaking on BT Sport, Scholes said: “This is Manchester United. They’ve to have the best in charge!
“Michael Carrick is a coach he’s had one game in charge with no experience anywhere else, he can’t.
“As much as I like the lad, they can’t appoint him. They need the very best at interim or full time.”
On his part, Ferdinand agreed with Scholes, adding: “I don’t think they’ll give it to Michael.
“One thing certain is they’re actively looking for somebody to be an interim to take us through until the end of the season then they’ll look for someone else to come in at the end of the season.
“You are looking at Laurent Blanc; someone who would not be full-time.
“Someone like [Mauricio] Pochettino when he was out of a job…there were murmurs he wanted to come to Man United in that period and it depends on how PSG see it.
“We have to wait and see, but Man United need to make enquiries if they want a manager who is in a job. Those conversations will be going on now.”
