Manchester United On The Verge Of Finalising First Summer Signing

Man Utd midfielder Michael Carrick confirms plans to become a manager

Man Utd midfielder Michael Carrick confirms plans to become a manager

The 36-year-old Carrick, who is moving onto the coaching staff, could still play one final time for United as Jose Mourinho's side faces Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday. I would like to thank him for the opportunity and confidence, for the knowledge and experience, but most importantly for his friendship.

Given the spectacular nature of their form this season, Mourinho concedes City fully deserve to be champions and says United "are going to try" to challenge next term.

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.

"I think it will be Michael Carrick in future, when he has his badges", he said. He's one of the best. That's normal. I know the players. 'I've to make the choices however in fact my assistants have an opinion and he'll take part in each facet'. And my analysts. I am not going to have an assistant supervisor within the sense of the phrase.

"Moving forward I will organize my coaching staff in a way where the assistant manager figure doesn't exist", Mourinho said.


And it was the former England midfielder who made the decisive contribution, his superb lifted throughball enabling Juan Mata to tee up Marcus Rashford to break the deadlock.

"I have a lot of memories to cherish, some I'll never forget, especially of this place".

The 35-year-old hangs up his boots following a 12-year stay at Old Trafford, although he will remain at the club in a coaching capacity.

Martial was absent from the matchday squad after picking up an injury in training on Friday, however, and is now in a race against time to return to fitness for next weekend.

Gomes; Janmaat, Cathcart, Kabasele, Holebas; Doucouré, Hughes; Deulofeu, Pereyra, Richarlison; Gray.
