The trio is an integral part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s backroom staff and the fact the club are keen to extend all of their contracts does suggest that confidence in the Norwegian remains – despite a patchy run of form.
McKenna was promoted to coach the first team in 2019 following a successful stint managing the club’s under-18s.
Carrick, a former midfielder for the senior side, joined the club’s coaching set up in January 2018 following his retirement from playing.
