Michael Carrick is still expected to be in charge for Sunday’s Premier League game at Chelsea, live on Sky Sports.
Carrick was placed in temporary charge while United sought to appoint an interim boss following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday.

Speaking to reporters on Friday, Carrick would not be drawn on reports that United are poised to name Rangnick as interim manager.
“From my point of view there’s a lot of speculation and reports, but as I’m sitting here now I’m preparing the team for the game (against Chelsea on Sunday),” Carrick said.
“My head’s in the game. I haven’t got any more news to share with you on that front. I’m just looking forward to getting down to London to play against Chelsea.”
