It is clear, though, that the seat is being kept warm for the five-time title-winner.

"And when Michael has the pro licence badges, normally with the personality, friendship and honesty he has, I think it will be for him". And my analysts. I'm not going to have an assistant manager in the sense of the word.

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 will organise my coaching staff in a way where the assistant manager figure doesn't exist". It is an unbelievable opportunity for me. 'He is one of the very best.

Carrick spoke to the fans after the win, thanking them for all their support over his 12-year career at the club, where he has lifted every trophy possible.

Michael Carrick's 464th and final Manchester United appearance - barring an unlikely run-out in the FA Cup final - featured a vintage moment via a sweet pass that created Marcus Rashford's first-half victor. 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.

But one person who was missing from the starting XI and the list of substitutes was Anthony Martial. He'd see passes that I did not even see on the pitch, and I used to be stood behind him watching.

"He's injured", he said. "He had treatment in the morning in the training ground and stayed away".

Speaking post-match, Mourinho provided injury updates on Lukaku and Martial, amid fears both could miss the FA Cup final. Therefore, to materialise a deal for the 27-year-old as well as generate enough funds to bring in new central midfielders and centre-backs, the Portuguese is expected to offload some of his current players.

Asked if he would be at Vicarage Road next season he was upbeat.

"I think they're different games really. You see some images of me talking with the coach", Pogba told beIN SPORTS.
