Carrick has breathed some air into the team since he took over, and he has been impressed with Akpom’s mentality
Manchester United legend and Middlesbrough coach Michael Carrick has praised Chuba Akpom for his brilliance this season.
It has been a massive turnaround for Nigerian striker Chuba Akpom at Boro this season. The 27-year-old has been impressive in recent months.
Akpom arrived at the club in 2020, but he did not impress. He scored only five goals in 39 appearances for the club. The following season, he was sent to his former club PAOK on a season-long loan deal.
