Middlesbrough's new boss Michael Carrick is a party animal who loves Manchester United deeply, according to his former team-mate Gary Neville.
Carrick was handed the reins at Boro by club chairman Steve Gibson on Monday, and they both shared their optimism about the future when sharing the news. Carrick's appointment comes after weeks of negotiations following the sacking of Chris Wilder.
But Gibson will have to brace himself for a lot of parties and singing from the club's new boss if he turns things around at the Riverside Stadium. Carrick's maintained a composed demeanour throughout his career, but he's got a wild side that comes out when he's on the winning team, Neville revealed.

Neville's talking from personal experience as the pair won four Premier League titles, and a Champions League trophy together at United. And the football pundit claims Carrick, who loves for United was prevalent behind the scenes, was the life and soul of the party after those victories.
Neville shared Carrick's hidden traits in an interview in 2017, where he said: "What people may not understand is the quiet, introverted passion that he holds for Manchester United. When we won leagues, Michael would be the one singing the most and going home last from the parties.

"The one that would look the happiest and most joyous behind the scenes at having won a trophy.
"On the pitch, in front of the crowds, he’d maintain his composure, but behind the scenes he showed how much he loved the club, believe me, he absolutely loves United."
Middlesbrough fans will be hoping that Carrick can grow to love Boro as much as he does United during his time at the Championship side, and have a few parties if he earns them promotion to the Premier League.
It's Carrick's first foray into management since he left United as interim manager, a role he was briefly given when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked, before Ralf Rangnick stepped in.
