Carrick Praises ‘Sensational’ Reggae Boy Hopeful Archer2 min read

Michael Carrick , the current Middlesbrough manager, has hailed potential Reggae Boy attacker Cameron Archer’s performances. Carrick said that he was impressed with the youngsters contribution to Middlesbrough’s season. The club is currently occupying fourth position in the Championship and they’re pushing for Premier League promotion.
The 21-year-old arrived in January but he has already established himself as an important player with his 10 goals and six assists. He is eligible to play for the Reggae Boyz through his mother.
This is Middlesbrough’s third bid to return to the Premier League. They are hoping to win their playoff games. The team has not participated in premier league football in the last six years.
Archer is an Aston Villa player who is on a season-long loan in Middlesbrough. Carrick revealed that he doesn’t know if the youngster will continue playing for the Championship side after the current loan contract expires. Carrick said that these kind of situations are always unpredictable especially when they involve a young talented player.
Carrick revealed that he would like to have Archer in his team for next season. However, he isn’t sure if Aston Villa will want him back or they will want him to continue his development in Middlesbrough.
Archer exploded into his Middlesbrough career, scoring one goal in only his third start against Cardiff. This game ended as a 3-1 win for Middlesbrough. He went on to score two goals in the very next game against Sheffield United. This game also ended up as a 3-1 win for Archer’s team.
He scored two more braces in a 4-0 win against Preston and in a 5-1 thrashing against Norwich.
Carrick described him as an attacker who loves shooting and scoring goals. He could be a useful player in coach Heimir Hallgrimsson’s team if he decides to play for Jamaica in the near future.
