Michael Carrick Makes Switch To Coaching Role At Old Trafford

Michael Carrick Makes Switch To Coaching Role At Old Trafford

If Eden Hazard goes to Real Madrid, I'm sure Chelsea would be keen on a swap deal. "Hopefully it still fits in a couple of years' time".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho pays tribute to retiring captain Michael Carrick following his 464th and final appearance for the club. "That's part of being on the staff - to work with the manager in trying to get what's best for the club".

"It changes overnight. This was the final chance to cut the cloth clean".

With Jose Mourinho's current assistant Rui Faria leaving the club in the summer, the United boss has intimated that Carrick could be his number two in the future. Brought in for a hefty £30-million from Southampton by Louis van Gaal, the future of Luke Shaw at Manchester United looked rosy - with him destined to be the club's first choice left back for the foreseeable future.

As Jose Mourinho sprinted down the Old Trafford touchline to celebrate Porto's stoppage time victor over Manchester United, knocking the Premier League giants out of the Champions League, Rui Faria held the fort on the bench.

Mourinho has already admitted that he will be bringing in at least one new midfielder this summer as a replacement for Carrick, and could have to enter the market twice should Marouane Fellaini decide to leave on a free.

Do great players make great managers?

He must complete the job at Manchester United, restoring the club to the top of the English game, or face the reality of his own mortality and decline.

'You never know what is going to be around the corner.

Faria has helped Mourinho's sides to eight domestic titles during their 17-year association, including two famous trebles at Porto and Inter Milan.

Mourinho is keen to replace Carrick in United's midfield and, as exclusively revealed in Metro.co.uk last week, the veteran will be asked to run the rule of his potential replacements.

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

Real Madrid will be on his mind, but having played for The Catalan giants across the country, he might prefer not to dig himself a hole there, making United's move possible. There will be other players.
