Jose Mourinho raves about Man United star Ashley Young

Jose Mourinho raves about Man United star Ashley Young

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted he wished he could have coached Michael Carrick earlier in his career after the midfielder hung up his boots on Sunday.

United went into their final game of the season against Watford assured of second place and with one eye on next weekend's FA Cup final against Chelsea.

Mourinho has spoken about his trusted lieutenant as a potential manager and, in the statement provided by United on Saturday, suggested that could be his next move.

Rashford's future, however, looks certain as the manager believes he "doesn't need anything" to prove himself.

"He's the right person to be an assistant as he's very calm and balanced", said Herrera.

It also helped remind younger fans just how Carrick has become one of the legends of the Premier League era in his dozen years at the club. And of course, some of the players I am totally convinced are going to make it, some others I have good hopes that they are going to make it, and some others I don't believe they are going to make it.

"He never gets insane happy and in the bad moments he keeps his head and tries to give the right advice to the team". In his 12-season stint at Old Trafford, he has lifted the Premier League five times, while also winning one FA Cup, three League Cups and two European trophies, including the 2008 Champions League.

Carrick added it was an emotional farewell as he captained United one last time, having walked on to the pitch with his children.

"It's all about having a lovely day and saying goodbye to Michael in the best way possible", he continued. Some have always been waiting for this and have come to terms with selling him, but some are still angry to see such a talented player be wasted by Mourinho. I can give you the guarantee that the club doesn't want to sell him.

The likes of Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian and Luke Shaw have hardly featured for the club this season and even when they were a part of the XI, the players failed to do much.

Carrick will move into Mourinho's backroom team from next season and the Portuguese added: "It was already hard for me because I got him in the last two years of his career".
