If and when Ralf Rangnick takes over at Old Trafford, Michael Carrick believes the Manchester United players will adapt to his high-pressing style.
Rangnick’s teams are known for their ferocious pressing, which was a criticism of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United before the Norwegian was fired.

At a press conference on Friday, Carrick, who will be in charge for Sunday’s trip to Chelsea, remained tight-lipped regarding Rangnick’s impending appointment as interim manager until the end of the season, but thinks the players will adapt to whomever comes in.
When asked whether he had been kept informed of Rangnick’s appointment, Carrick said, “Conjecture and rumours are speculation and reports.”
“I’m preparing the team for the game [against Chelsea] while I sit here. On that front, I don’t have any further information to share with you.”
“There’s a lot of different styles in football,” Carrick remarked when asked whether Rangnick might be successful in attempting to integrate his pressing style with United’s current crop of players.
“There’s a bunch of guys here that can adjust to anyone comes in. The group has some very wonderful individuals and human beings, and I’m certain they’ll relish the challenges ahead.”
Rangnick, a former RB Leipzig coach, will be appointed till the conclusion of the season until a new permanent manager is appointed in the summer.
Solskjaer was fired after a run of seven losses in 13 games, ending in a humiliating 4-1 loss at Watford, but Carrick believes the former striker deserves credit if the team achieves future success.
“I believe developing and building an atmosphere was one of Ole’s most important tasks as manager,” Carrick remarked.
“As you can see, we ended well last season, but once the results began to go [wrongly], things moved rapidly, which is a pity since everything may get lost in the shuffle.”
“It’s still there, and the backroom people and atmosphere have been quite helpful to me this week. What happens next is certain, and it’s a terrific place to start.”
When Carrick leads his squad to Stamford Bridge, he hopes to build on a 2-0 victory against Villarreal. Luke Shaw is still doubtful after missing the trip to Spain due to a concussion, while Fred is battling after injuring his ankle on Tuesday night.
Carrick said, “We’ve got two or three separate tiny difficulties that we’re waiting to see.” “It’s never ideal; you want a complete squad to choose from, but we’re waiting on one or two players.”
“Luke was knocked out and concussed, and then he was knocked out again against Watford.” Fred injured his ankle in the game versus Villarreal, but he was able to continue.
“It’s very great that you’re assisting us in finishing the game. We’ll see what happens. There are a few more as well. We’ll be a formidable force on the way down [to Chelsea].”
Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino has “never sought to leave the club,” according to PSG sports director Leonardo, despite United’s interest in hiring him as their permanent manager.
According to ESPN, United’s initial interest in the PSG coach was turned down, but the Argentine’s status is still being monitored.
On Friday, Leonardo told AFP, “We don’t want Pochettino to go.” “He’s never been asked to leave,” says the narrator.
