Michael Carrick Makes Switch To Coaching Role At Old Trafford

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick thanks his teammates, manager and family following his final game at Old Trafford.

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

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

Mourinho has decided he can not adequately replace his right-hand man of the past 17 years and will instead redesign his staff with no official deputy.

Veteran midfielder Carrick, 36, is hanging up his boots to take up a place on Mourinho's backroom employees - though that transfer was deliberate earlier than information of Faria's departure was introduced on the weekend.

"I'm there to give my opinion". He already has no doubt he will be able to call on Carrick's expertise when it comes to identifying new players, particularly in his old midfield role.

But Shaw has implied that he plans to remain at Old Trafford by noting how Carrick, despite not playing, would remain close to the Man United squad next season.
