Man United No 2 Faria leaving after 17 years with Mourinho

Carrick's moment came in the 85th minute when the Englishman was brought off to a standing ovation, and he will now join Mourinho's coaching staff at Old Trafford.

Jones mentioned: "I am positive Carras will get a terrific send-off".

Manchester United checked into the Lowry Lodge on Sunday morning forward of their ultimate Premier League recreation of the season. I am sure he will teach me a few things and certain we will have some success'.

Speaking about the nine changes that he made to his XI, Mourinho said: "The [cup final] is next Saturday so I'm not concerned about that".

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

Mourinho said on the United website that 42-year-old Faria, who he has worked with since 2001, was ideally situated now to become a manager in his own right.

"I don't think it (an immediate appointment) makes sense when Rui is leaving after 17 years". The veteran midfielder's neat pass late in the first half found Juan Mata, who then found Marcus Rashford, with the England striker poking home what proved to be the victor.

"I have a lot of memories to cherish, some I'll never forget, especially of this place".

This game posed very little importance for Jose Mourinho, so he started players that would not normally play. "He was injured, he was injured Friday training session, yesterday couldn't train".

In stark contrast, their FA Cup final opponents Chelsea had a torrid time at St. James' Park, losing 3-0 to Newcastle United as their top four hopes fell apart.

"He had treatment in the morning at the training round and he stayed away. I know Romelu will be back for Tuesday and we have to see [if he will be fit] but Anthony I have no more [information]". "I bear in mind being on the Gamers" Awards dinner the opposite evening and on the large TV display you noticed the trophies that he'd gained and even I did not realise he'd gained that many!
