Michael Carrick picks up Man Utd coaching reins for FA Cup final

Michael Carrick picks up Man Utd coaching reins for FA Cup final

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is bracing himself for unforgiving chatter about his consistent dismissal of youth talent - as he prepares to ditch a break-out youth star from last season. United still have the FA Cup final to play this weekend, but it's unlikely that any of the players who appear at Wembley will be allowed to leave the club by Jose Mourinho.

'That's part of being on the staff to work with the manager to try to get what's best for the club, ' said Carrick. "It changes overnight. I am not training this week".

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

Carrick, who has made 464 appearances after joining the club from Tottenham in 12 years, said that he did not think twice about taking the new role.

"If that moment arrives, I will be a very proud guy because this man came to me when he was a kid 17 years ago". The England worldwide, who was given the guard of honour by both the clubs in his final match, spoke about Mourinho and described him as "one of the best".

But to do that, he will need to move things around in his first-team squad - and that means one of his star 21-year-old academy midfielders could be shifted out on loan, with a number of clubs keen to take him, according to reports.

'And of course I have to make the decisions but of course my assistants have an opinion and he has, obviously in relation to his position. a different vision than any other opinion than you can have from any scout or analysis department'.
