Michael Carrick says Manchester United’s win over Villarreal was for former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Carrick was placed in charge as interim manager against Villarreal after Solskjaer was sacked on Sunday.
The Red Devils ran out 2-0 winners thanks to late goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho, booking their place in the Champions League last-16 phase.
Speaking after the game, Carrick said: “I said to the players it’s not been an easy couple of days for everyone at the club, I can enjoy it so much but that result feels like it’s for Ole and I can’t get away from that.
“We had a job to do and when I was there and things needed to be taken care of I was happy to do it and thankfully it all want to plan at the end.”
