Manchester United’s temporary manager Michael Carrick has insisted he has ‘his own ideas’ on how they should play following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s exit.
Solskjaer was sacked by United on Sunday following their humiliating 4-1 defeat to Watford.
The club confirmed Carrick will take over for the next few games, before an interim boss is put in charge.
Asked if fans could expect to see any changes in approach from the team on Tuesday night, he said: ‘We will have to wait and see. I worked closely with Ole and we do have very similar beliefs – we did as players and we certainly do as coaches.
‘Of course I’ve got my own personality to Ole but we’re very similar and that’s why we worked together for so long. I’m not giving too much away about what my plans are but I’m very clear in my own mind about how we want to play and I’m looking forward to seeing that on the pitch.’
