Since then, there has been a significant turnaround for Carrick’s team. They have experienced just one loss in their last 10 second-tier games, with a recent notable victory over Championship leaders Leicester City by a score of 1-0. Currently, Middlesbrough holds the 10th position in the Championship table, merely two points away from the coveted play-off spots.

Despite a challenging start to the season, young defender van den Berg disclosed that the manager remained supportive and constructive. In an interview with TeesideLive, he explained the difficulty of losing early games, with fans expressing their dissatisfaction due to poor performance and a lack of goal-scoring opportunities. However, Carrick’s approach stood out as he never resorted to negative reactions or shouting at the players; instead, he focused on helping them improve, fostering a positive environment.

This stands in contrast to the managerial style of Ferguson, who was known for displaying anger towards underperforming players. Carrick’s calm and supportive approach seems to be yielding positive results, evident in Middlesbrough’s current impressive form.

As the team heads into the international break, there is anticipation about how they will perform upon their return. The recent victory against Leicester City likely boosted the team’s confidence, and they are determined to secure a place in the top six during the upcoming festive period.
