Jose Mourinho hails "unbelievable" Michael Carrick

Grant SmithMay 17, 2018

'I am not training this week. "I am going to jump on the staff", he was quoted as saying by AFP.

Mourinho said: "I have to make the decisions but of course my assistants have an opinion". He's been around for many years. He also won 34 England caps.

Carrick was full of praise for Mourinho, and said: "I need to thank Jose for giving me the opportunity. But it is a hard role, you need somebody to talk to because you can't bounce things off people if they're not there". This was the final chance to cut the cloth clean.

Jose Mourinho's long-serving assistant announced last were that he will leave Manchester United at the end of the season. It all fits in.

"I have to thank the manager an terrible lot". It just fits. Hopefully it still fits in a couple of years' time.

The 42-year-old, who was linked with the vacant manager's post at Arsenal, wants to spend more time with his family before testing himself as a head coach and leaves with Mourinho's blessing.

'I think it will be Michael Carrick in the future. It's not an issue. "I'm not getting carried away here. When he has his pro license, when he makes the bridge from player to assistant". Carrick's 464th appearance for United ended in the 85th minute when he left the game to a huge ovation.

But Carrick is aware that his playing career doesn't mean his transition and coaching career will go smoothly.

'However simply because I used to be a half-decent participant, it would not assure you are going to be a hit in no matter you do. I have said it for the last few years, we have still been taking trophies when we haven't necessarily been a contender in the league.

Carrick - who plans to seek advice from other players-turned-coaches like former teammate Ryan Giggs - laughed off a suggestion he might be tempted back onto the pitch in the same way Paul Scholes performed a retirement U-turn in 2012.

He will take up a coaching role in Jose Mourinho's backroom team, working closely with the Portuguese.

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