Manchester United assistant manager Faria to leave at season's end

Michael Carrick played his final game on Sunday and will now join the coaching staff full-time and Mourinho says the midfielder could become his assistant at some point.

Carrick started in Manchester United's 1-0 win over Watford at Old Trafford and it was his last league appearance as he will be hanging up his boots at the end of the season. I think the Liverpool game, because of the history and the tradition and everything that goes behind it, it run deeps doesn't it?

Carrick was full of praise for Mourinho, and said: "I need to thank Jose for giving me the opportunity".

United dominated the opening exchanges although they hardly tested goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes in the opening 15 minutes of the encounter.

Speaking on the pitch after the game, Carrick said: "I would like to say thank you for your support over the years, I've got a lot of memories to cherish. You see some images of me talking with the coach", Pogba told beIN SPORTS.

Mourinho said of Faria's departure: "Seventeen years... in Leiria, Porto, London, Milan, Madrid, London again and Manchester". It's the greatest club in the world and I thank you for your support for the last 12 years.

Yet there was no Anthony Martial in the squad, despite Mourinho's prior indication the Frenchman would start. "He had treatment at the training ground", added the United boss.

Liverpool reaching a European Cup final, where they face Real Madrid on May 26, has hardly lifted the mood either - and the chants of "Viva Ronaldo" showed exactly who United fans want to win in Kiev.

But most of the time, Carrick was able to run the game without anyone getting near him, not just on the ball but off it.

Sometimes it's hard in the modern era for a player of his vintage to impose himself physically and one 50-50 saw him lose out to the solid figure of Roberto Pereyra. However, I have felt for some time I would like to spend much more quality time with my family before pursuing any new challenge in my professional life.
