Huddersfield Town are looking at a potential move for former Manchester United coach Michael Carrick, according to Alan Nixon.
The Lowdown: Plenty of names mentioned…
The Terriers parted ways with Danny Schofield on Wednesday following defeat to Wigan less than 24 hours earlier.
Since then, a number of names have emerged to come in, including former manager David Wagner and Plymouth Argyle boss Steven Schumacher. Another new name has popped up ahead of the weekend, with Dean Hoyle seemingly looking at Carrick.
The Latest: Carrick interest
Reliable EFL reporter Nixon took to Twitter on Thursday lunchtime to provide an update on Huddersfield’s hunt for a new manager.
He stated that Carrick is in the ‘Huddersfield frame’, sharing a story on his Patreon account.
Carrick at Huddersfield?
Yes, why not!
The Verdict: Gamble
Carrick’s only senior managerial experience came last year when he won two of his three games as caretaker of Manchester United.
He likes to play a 4-1-4-1 system, according to Transfermarkt, and has assisted both Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
Therefore, it would be a gamble by Hoyle, should he decide to bring the 41-year-old to The John Smith’s Stadium, and perhaps fans would prefer a slightly less high-risk option.
