Michael Carrick to Join Jose Mourinho Coaching Staff During FA Cup

Mourinho went out of his way to take a dig at Gary Neville following Sunday's win against Watford after the former United captain questioned whether McTominay has what it takes to play in the club's midfield.

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

Becoming a manager himself is something Carrick might want to pursue one day but that is not something he intends to push for yet. "I am not training this week".

He said: 'I need to thank Jose for giving me the opportunity. It [the role] changes overnight. It all fits in. "I've been at this club, and it is such a great club, so I obviously know the club and the manager", he said. "Hopefully it still fits in a couple of years" time'.

The Portuguese intends to reorganise his coaching staff and will not have an immediate deputy, although he hopes Carrick could grow into such a role. This was the final chance to cut the cloth clean.

"Also, in the second major competition in the country, we are one of the two best teams; we are playing the [FA Cup] final so if you want to read it in a positive way, you can in a very objective way".

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.

The Red Devils finished second in the Premier League this season, securing Champions League football for next year. Faria has since followed Mourinho across Europe and played a big part in Porto's successful European campaign's from which Mourinho made his name.

'Just because I was a half-decent player it doesn't guarantee you're going to be a success in whatever you do. "I'm sure that will be the case again", Carrick added.

"I have a lot of memories to cherish, some I'll never forget, especially of this place". You can be negative until the point that you say that Scott McTominay, who is a kid who arrived here at nine years old, is not good enough.

Should Kroos prove unattainable, then Express Sport understands United are monitoring three other players.
