    Former Man Utd midfielder Carrick new Middlesbrough boss

    LONDON (AFP) – Michael Carrick has been appointed as the new coach of English second-tier strugglers Middlesbrough, the Championship club announced on Monday.

    The 41-year-old former Manchester United midfielder and assistant manager replaces Chris Wilder, who was sacked earlier this month, and will be joined at the Riverside Stadium by former Boro boss Jonathan Woodgate, who will return to the northeast club in the role of first-team coach.

    “The club is delighted to announce the appointment of Michael Carrick as head coach,” said a statement on its website.

    “Michael brings a wealth of experience to the club having spent 12 years as a player at Manchester United before coaching and caretaker managing the Old Trafford club.”

    Boro chairman Steve Gibson added, “We’re delighted to welcome Michael to the club. We had identified a number of potentials for the vacancy who we spoke with, and were impressed by all, but Michael was the outstanding candidate.

    “Michael has the same values as the club, and we are very much aligned in our ambitions.

    “We see Michael as the perfect fit for us.”
