Michael Carrick of Manchester United is embraced by manager Jose Mourinho after he is substituted in his last game before retirement

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. "I am not training this week".

"I need to thank Jose for giving me the opportunity", said Carrick in an address to supporters after the game. If Eden Hazard goes to Real Madrid, I'm sure Chelsea would be keen on a swap deal. It [the role] changes overnight.

The 55-year-old Englishman was asked by Premier League Daily whether or not Jose will miss an assistant like Faria, to which Phelan replied, "That's a good question". It all fits in.

"I have nobody in the world of football ready to be my assistant manager, so I prefer to educate people and to structure my staff in a way where there is education and improvement. Hopefully it still fits in a couple of years' time".

Mourinho revealed after Saturday's 1-0 win over Watford that he has no plans to search for a successor to Faria, saying he would restructure his backroom staff instead.

"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".

"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.

He added: "That Man City game at Old Trafford, you could sense among United fans that they didn't want to play City, because they were going to play them off the park".

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table but won the EFL Cup and the Europa League last term.

"In the league, which is where everybody wants to be measured, you have to say that second is progression from where Manchester United have been, but it's not a successful season for Manchester United when you don't win the league". There will be other players.

According to The Telegraph, any move is dependant on whether or not Benfica sack current boss Rui Vitoria, who is under mounting pressure at the Lisbon club having lost the Portuguese league to Porto this season.
