Michael Carrick to Join Jose Mourinho Coaching Staff During FA Cup


He talked about Michael Carrick, he will probably sit in between roles and learn his trade a little bit. "Hopefully it still fits in a couple of years' time".

Jesse Lingard of Manchester United celebrates after scoring his sides second goal with team mates during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Chelsea at Old Trafford on February 25, 2018 in Manchester, England.

While it was a good season for the Red Devils, they still managed to finish an incredible 19 points behind behind their Manchester rivals, who broke all sorts of records to clinch their fifth league title.

Mourinho has made no secret of his desire to bring in another midfielder this summer, and Carrick said he will be happy to give his opinion if he is approached by the United boss. I am going to jump on the staff.

Jose Mourinho has backed Michael Carrick to become his assistant manager in the future now the 36-year-old has retired from professional football.

He will no doubt be missed as part of the first-team setup but with this new challenge in the career of the one-time Champions League victor, it will be interesting to see if he can take to his new position with the same level of success as he did his last.

"He is one of the best", Carrick said. "It is an unbelievable opportunity for me". It's an fantastic place to play football.

However, Carrick's association with United will continue as he will join Jose Mourinho's backroom staff this summer.

Faria was linked with a move to Arsenal, replacing Arsene Wenger but now it seems like with Mikel Arteta rumoured to join the club as their new manager, he is going to take helm of a big club in home land Portugal. If Eden Hazard goes to Real Madrid, I'm sure Chelsea would be keen on a swap deal.

"People think it's just like "one day I am a player, the next day I am a coach" and it's not like that. Obviously, he will have a different opinion to those you can get from any other scout, or any analysis department".

"I had the issue when I signed and it was all about Roy Keane, but I was never going to replace Roy Keane because it's not how I am".
