Rui Faria could be offered a huge job after leaving Manchester United

Michael Carrick is making an immediate switch from Manchester United's playing squad to the coaching team in time for Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea.

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.

Despite scoring 81 points and securing a second-placed finish - their highest ever since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, there is not much joy emanating from around Old Trafford and from those who are committed to the club. That will evolve and when he wants my opinion I'm there to give it'. "That's part of being on the staff - to work with the manager in trying to get what's best for the club".

The Manchester United midfielder captained his side for the final time during a 1-0 win over Watford on the last day of the season.

"I need to thank Jose for giving me the opportunity", said Carrick in an address to supporters after the game. This was the final chance to cut the cloth clean.

Faria has chose to end his 17-year stint as Mourinho's number two, while Carrick has joined the Portuguese's backroom staff after retiring from his playing career.

"As much as we want to win the league and we are desperate to win the league, we are in a better place than what we were past year. I am sure he will teach me a few things and certain we will have some success".

Mourinho is actively looking to strengthen his central midfield area, with Michael Carrick retiring and continued doubts over whether Marouane Fellaini will stay at the club or leave on a free this summer.

The tweet read: "Carrick, incredible person and sensational player".

"He never looks comfortable as United manager and, with a relatively bland team, he's probably got six to 12 months to prove himself because he's not really improved the way this team play".
