Michael Carrick insists he is fully focused on preparing Manchester United for Sunday’s game against Chelsea, with the Red Devils reportedly on the brink of appointing Ralf Rangnick.
According to reports, the 63-year-old is set to take over the reins at Old Trafford as interim manager for the remainder of this season, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having been dismissed after last weekend’s 4-1 defeat at Watford.
