Former Manchester United midfielder, Michael Carrick has parted ways with United after 15 years stay at the club.
After Manchester United sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer due to the club's dismal performance this season, Carrick was appointed as a caretaker manager of United.
Carrick has now left the club after the arrival of Ralf Rangnick, who is appointed as an interim coach for the remainder of the season and will be given a consultancy role for the next two years.
Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who Thursday made history by scoring the 800th goal of his career, bid farewell to his former teammate and welcomed the newly-appointed head coach.
In an Instagram post, Cristiano Ronaldo praised the "class act" Michael Carrick and said that he can become a great coach in the future.
"Michael Carrick was a class act as a player and he can become a great coach as well. Nothing is impossible for this guy."
"Personally, I’m proud to have played with him by my side as well as with him as a manager on our bench," Cristiano wrote.
