Micheal Carrick is the fourth coach after Sir Alex Ferguson and the second former Manchester United player to have coached the team after Ferguson. He won his first game in charge as a manager in the Champions League in a 1-0 win against Villarreal.

Sir Alex Ferguson spent 27 years at Manchester United and finding a replacement for him has been an herculean task. David Moyes, who succeeded Ferguson, Moyes took the team to Swansea to run a 4-1 riot against their host.

Just a year later the case was not the same for Louis Van Gaal who had just became the new head coach at Manchester United losing 2-1 to Swansea City , a team thrashed last season. 

Ryan Giggs took over as interim manager and won Norwich City 2-0 in his first game. Jose Mourinho first was against Bournemouth, a match he won conveniently by three goals to ensure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had a good start with Manchester United, thrashing Cardiff City 5-1 in the Premier League. Most Manchester United coaches started on a good note but none has been able to come close to the achievement of Ferguson.
