Mike Phelan: Jose Mourinho not replacing Rui Faria a gamble

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

It just fits. Hopefully it still fits in a couple of years' time.

The following day he began his new job as a member of manager Jose Mourinho's coaching staff, with the small matter of this weekend's clash with Chelsea at Wembley to prepare for.

Said Mourinho: "I will organise my coaching staff in a way where the assistant manager figure doesn't exist". "I will be on the coaching staff on Saturday".

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.

"I do think he's the type that it's good for him to play games in there - but I do wonder whether if actually he's got more of a position at centre back eventually, the physicality that he has".

According to Manchester Evening News, Brito said: "Of course Jose will feel the loss a lot although no one is irreplaceable".

He will no doubt be missed as part of the first-team setup but with this new challenge in the career of the one-time Champions League victor, it will be interesting to see if he can take to his new position with the same level of success as he did his last.

The former England midfielder also said he meant to be a "pest" by picking the brains of as many people as possible as he embarks on his foray into coaching and potentially management in the future. "I'm well aware of that", he said. Huge players, bigger than me, and the club has moved on and still been successful. 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.

The midfielder was given a guard of honour by both teams on Sunday and had a hand in the only goal of the game, playing Juan Mata in behind the defence for the Spaniard to tee up Marcus Rashford. I have nobody in the world of football ready to be assistant manager.

Carrick made 464 appearances for the club across all competitions, helping them to 18 trophies including five Premier League titles and the 2008 Champions League. I look forward to working with him and learning from him. This was the final chance to cut the cloth clean. He'll teach me some things and we're going to have some success in the near future, I'm certain of that.
