Michael Carrick's kids have made an honest brutal assessment of their dad, firing a matchday dig at the way the former Manchester United midfielder handles himself on the touchline.
The 40-year-old will take charge of his first United game this evening, against Europa League winners Villarreal, after the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the weekend.
A 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday was deemed the final straw for the Norwegian and Carrick has now been placed in charge for the foreseeable future.
The former United midfielder may be a popular figure around Old Trafford, but his kids aren't too sure about the appointment.
Carrick's children have made a scathing assessment about his touchline antics.
He said: "When my kids see me on the bench on matchday they say: 'Dad, do you actually do anything? Because it looks like you're not doing anything'."
Though United fans are hoping Carrick can "do something" to turn the tide at Old Trafford after a dismal run.
The Red Devils have lost four of their last five Premier League matches, slipping to eighth in the table.
