Speaking after their Premier League match against Chelsea on Sunday afternoon, stand-in Manchester United manager Michael Carrick remains adamant that the Red Devils can still have a successful season, despite their poor recent form.
United, who dismissed former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last week, were in action against league leaders Chelsea in their first domestic match since the Norwegian departed.
Looking to put a stop to their poor run of league results that has included a 5-0 hammering against Liverpool and a 4-1 thrashing against Watford, the Red Devils did well to come away from Stamford Bridge with a hard-fought point following a 1-1 draw.
Speaking to beIN Sports after the match, Carrick, who looks set to make way for interim manager Ralf Rangnick, has admitted that he feels ‘calm’ when it comes to the team being capable of turning their season around.
🗣️ “I feel for the players… They gave absolutely everything. A lot has been made of this pressing thing, we press high up the pitch in pretty much every game.”
