Gary Neville responds to Michael Carrick's Manchester United exit after Arsenal win

Carrick called time on his United stint in light of the German's arrival at Old Trafford but boasts an unbeaten record in his three games in the managerial hot seat.

The former midfielder has been lauded for his role in securing Champions League knockout qualification.

His first Premier League matches saw a baptism of fire against league-leaders Chelsea and Arsenal with the Reds coming out unscathed with four points out of a possible six, following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's exit.

Manchester United players past and present paid tribute to the 40-year-old for his time in charge, bringing 15 years in the North West to a halt.

In 2018, he was added to the coaching staff by Jose Mourinho and stayed on under Solskjaer before the Norwegian took the reins on a permanent basis after a successful temporary stint.

Gary Neville tweeted: "Ive just seen the Michael Carrick news. Feels like the right call to get out and furrow his own path.

"A great player and a fantastic person. Congratulations on a great Manchester United career."

The former Tottenham midfielder signs off his time with United - for the moment at least - with a 3-2 win over Arsenal after a Bruno Fernandes goal and a Cristiano Ronaldo brace secured an important three points.

It saw the Reds deny the visitors from taking the points from Old Trafford for the first time since the 36-year-old's second debut against Newcastle in early September.

The win moved United to within two points of the European places, three off the top four with Ralf Rangnick taking charge against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
