Man Utd legend Michael Carrick spotted in away end at Everton as ex-midfielder closes in on Middlesbrough job


MANCHESTER UNITED legend Michael Carrick was spotted in the away end in the 2-1 win over Everton on Sunday.

Carrick watched on alongside fans as old team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 700th club goal.

His appearance alongside Red Devils fans comes as he reportedly closes in on the vacant managerial post at Middlesbrough.

The Championship club sacked Chris Wilder earlier this month after a dismal start to the campaign.

And according to TeesideLive, Carrick is understood to have been at Rockliffe last week as Boro interviewed shortlisted candidates.

Carrick is hoping to land his first permanent managerial post after having a successful three-game stint at United after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked last year.

The 34-capped ex-England international won two and drew one before departing.

Former Huddersfield manager Carlos Corberan is Carrick’s main rival.

But should Carrick land the job, he will take over Boro in 21st.

Boro lost their last game 2-0 to Millwall but the likes of West Brom, Huddersfield and Coventry are still lagging behind.

West Brom are also on the hunt for a new manager after sacking ex-Premier League boss Steve Bruce.

The Baggies picked up just one win in 13 league games.

Ronaldo netted in the first half of United’s 2-1 away win against Everton.

His team-mates celebrated the milestone with him in the changing room, posing for a big group photo as well as having giant gold balloons in the background.

And team-mate Antony, who scored the equaliser for the Red Devils at Goodison Park, took to social media to congratulate Ronaldo.

The big-money Brazilian signing said: “What an honor for me!! Congratulations, @Cristiano!!

“Another great brand in a career full of achievements and achievements!! May we enjoy this even more together!!”

Gushing youth star Garnacho, who has got up close with both Ronaldo and international team-mate Lionel Messi, congratulated his “idol”.
