Michael Carrick Middlesbrough manager

Michael Carrick odds-on favourite for vacant Middlesbrough job

Michael Carrick is the leading candidate to take over the vacant managerial position at Middlesbrough, according to the bookmakers. 

Priced on Oddschecker (opens in new tab) at 4/5 and 11/10, Carrick is the overwhelming favourite to be the next man in Middlesbrough’s dugout. Originally from Wallsend in the north east, Carrick never actually played any of his career in that part of the country. Instead, he opted to come through West Ham’s academy, before switching to Tottenham and then later Manchester United.

The former midfielder played for United between 2006 and 2018, before moving into a coaching role under Jose Mourinho once he had retired. Carrick then stayed at the club when Mourinho was sacked in 2018, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer allowing him to continue as first-team coach.

However, when the Norwegian was sacked in November 2021, Carrick took over as caretaker manager for three matches. His team beat Villarreal away in the Champions League, drew away to Chelsea in the Premier League, and then beat Arsenal at Old Trafford.
