Reports: Boyhood Newcastle United fan now in line for talks to manage Middlesbrough


Middlesbrough want talks with Michael Carrick as the Newcastle United fan considers a move to their north-east rivals.

Boro decided to sack Chris Wilder on Monday after a truly dismal start to the season.

Many backed Boro to progress, but their start to the season has been a huge disappointment.

After last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Coventry City, Boro have just two wins from 11 Championship outings and Wilder paid for his work.

Middlesbrough want to talk to Michael Carrick

Boro brought in Wilder to win promotion, but it now appears to be a complete change with targets for young coaches.

Rob Edwards seemed the best option, but Michael Carrick’s name is emerging.

iNews report that Carrick is one name Boro are considering as talks begin for Wilder’s replacement.

BBC Sport now add that Boro are keen to hold talks with Carrick about potentially taking over the job with Steve Gibson interested in the former England ace.

Carrick, 41, was in charge of Manchester United last season and was unbeaten in three games, recording two wins and a draw.

Carrick decided to end his time at United once Ralf Rangnick arrived and patiently waited for his next coaching chance.

A return to the North East would certainly interest Carrick, who hails from Wallsend – just around an hour’s drive from Middlesbrough.

Carrick is a known childhood fan of Newcastle United but could now join rivals the Magpies as their new manager.

Middlesbrough aren’t Newcastle’s biggest rivals – we all know it’s Sunderland – but when the pair return to the same division, you can expect that rivalry to heat up again.

Boro may now be looking to Carrick as the man to take them back to the Premier League and reignite that rivalry, allowing the Geordie to take on his boyhood club.
