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

Jose Mourinho Manchester United Premier League

Manchester United will look to win the Premier League title for the first time since 2013 next season.

In an inconsequential game with little intensity, Marcus Rashford broke the deadlock after Juan Mata expertly controlled the retiring Michael Carrick's long ball, before laying the ball on a plate for the 20-year old. "I'm not going to have an assistant manager in the sense of the word".

United will have the chance to give their captain the flawless sending off when they take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final on May 19.

Carrick's appearance on Sunday, in otherwise unremarkable final Premier League game of the season, was his 464th and last for United.

"The intelligent student is now a football expert, ready for a successful career as a manager", he said.

It was expected that the player will next join Mourinho on a full-time basis from next season after spending some quality time with his family.

GETTYSky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has cast doubt on Jose Mourinho's future at Manchester United

Manchester United's Michael Carrick says he switched "overnight" from being a player to a coach in readiness for Saturday's FA Cup final at Wembley.

"I would like to thank him for the opportunity and confidence, for the knowledge and experience, but most importantly for his friendship", he said.

The Englishman enjoyed a positive run of games in December, leading to Jose Mourinho branding him as one of the best left-backs in Europe, but has since only made four starts.

"It was an unbelievable reception when I came off", Carrick said of Sunday's match. I obviously know the club and manager and will be learning off him, the backroom staff, trying to bring the kids through and have an influence on that.

I'm going to have assistant coaches, I'm going to have fitness coaches, and a structure where they have specialists in different areas connected to the performance.

Martial, on the other hand, is a doubt for the FA Cup final next week. "He'll teach me some things and we're going to have some success in the near future, I'm certain of that".
