Lincoln City hold talks with 40-yo over managerial vacancy

League One side Lincoln City are searching for potential new managers after the departure of Michael Appleton at the end of the season.

Now, according to Football Insider, the Imps have held talks with ex-Manchester United coach and legend Michael Carrick.

An industry source has told Football Insider that Carrick is keen for a permanent managerial role, after being Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s number two for a few years and then taking the reigns at Old Trafford for a handful of games.

Now the 40-year-old has held talks with the Imps and is said to be weighing up the interest before deciding on his future.

Carrick was unbeaten in his three games in temporary charge of United before he announced his departure from the club when Ralf Rangnick took over in December.

It brought to an end a 15-year association with the Premier League giants as a player and coach where he won every domestic trophy as well as the Champions League and Europa League.

Meanwhile, Appleton left Lincoln after three seasons in charge of the club, one being last campaign where he managed to guide the Imps to a playoff place and then eventually the playoff final, where they lost to Blackpool. However, that success wasn’t lived up to and Lincoln finished a disappointing 17th place, 12 points above the relegation zone.

If this move was to occur Carrick wouldn’t be the first member of Ole’s coaching staff to take a managerial role in League One. Fellow member Kieran McKenna took over at Ipswich Town back in December.
