José Mourinho's assistant manager Rui Faria to leave Manchester United at the end of the season

"I am going to jump on the staff", he was quoted as saying by AFP.

Rui Faria, Jose Mourinho's trusted confidante and assistant, will leave Manchester United at the end of the season. The Portuguese duo spent over 17 years working together but Mourinho has insisted that he would not require a replacement for his national compatriot Faria at Manchester United next season.

However, United have received a number of loan enquiries from Premier League clubs for McTominay and Mourinho is wary that he won't be able to give the youngster as much playing time next season if he secures his top targets.

"Of course Jose will feel the loss a lot although no one is irreplaceable", the Brazilian told the Manchester Evening News.

"They finished second and could win the FA Cup but let's face it. this is one of the most boring United teams", Redknapp said in his column in the Daily Mail.

"I need to thank Jose for giving me the opportunity", Carrick said.

While legendary midfielder Michael Carrick is set to join Mourinho's coaching staff after hanging up his boots, he will not move directly into an assistant manager's role as the United manager has admitted that he simply won't have a traditional assistant for the coming campaign.


"The final chance to cut the cloth clean".

'Moving forward I will organise my coaching staff in a way where the assistant manager figure doesn't exist. "Hopefully it still fits in a couple of years" time'.

'Because I've got things, I'm kind of more excited about the future than looking back and being sad that it's over'.

He added: "That Man City game at Old Trafford, you could sense among United fans that they didn't want to play City, because they were going to play them off the park".

Carrick - signed for £18m from Tottenham - joined the Red Devils seven months after Keane's departure.

"I think we've become a bit idealistic about what the football was at times under Sir Alex".

'Just because I was a half-decent player it doesn't guarantee you're going to be a success in whatever you do. There will be other players.
