I’m enjoying it, I’m just playing with a smile on my face, I can’t complain, I’m loving it at the moment,’ Akpom said.

‘Immediately when he came in he put me in the No.10 role and he just gave me the license to just roam around, you see on the pitch I’m just roaming right to left.

‘He’s given me the freedom to just go out there and express myself, I appreciate that so much”.

Asked how much he owes to Carrick, Akpom replied: ‘Massively, massively.

‘I think he’s the manager I’ve been dreaming of my whole career.

‘Honestly, he’s a pleasure to work with, I go out there and give 110 per cent and I want to fight for the manager because he’s showed so much trust and confidence in me, and I really appreciate it, so I just had to dedicate that to the gaffer today (Wednesday).
