Carrick earmarked to be Mourinho's assistant at Manchester United

Carrick earmarked to be Mourinho's assistant at Manchester United

The Northern Irishman, 32, is an ambitious coach and has been earmarked for a promotion this summer as Mourinho looks to reshape his staff after Faria's surprise departure.

"I think finishing second and winning the FA Cup would probably be satisfactory for Manchester United, but we always want to win more".

Given the lack of anything to play for in this game, José Mourinho has taken the chance to give fringe players some minutes; Matteo Darmian, Scott McTominay, Daley Blind and Michael Carrick all start in what will be Carrick's last ever match as a player.

Should Vitoria get the chop, Faria would be seriously considered for the vacancy at the club, having confirmed his intention to amicably end his 17-year association with Mourinho.

In order to close the gap to their "noisy neighbours", Neville believes that Manchester United's current squad is lacking characters to drag them through such games - games they should have won. "I think winning the FA Cup and going into next season will be good for us".

"It changes overnight", Carrick said.

On reaching a third final in two seasons, Jones added: "We're moving in the right direction". 'I've got other things to do and I kind of focused on that before this. I'd just say to the fans, I'm sure if I was a Chelsea fan I would've enjoyed the last seven, eight, nine, 10 years. This was the final chance to cut the cloth clean.

But after gathering all that knowledge from his journeys with Mourinho, Faria is looking to break into the managerial world as a number one.

Antonio Conte's side finished a disappointing fifth in the Premier League in 2017-18, meaning they will not play in next season's Champions League.

Thus, Jose Mourinho should be on notice, and you know he will be as Mourinho has already intimated the idea that Carrick could be his top lieutenant in the future.

"People remember the cup final if you win a cup final".

"When I was younger I used to get really nervous before games, so much so, you are nearly throwing up before games".
