Michael Carrick ready to learn from Jose Mourinho after ending playing career

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.

After captaining United in their 1-0 victory over Watford at Old Trafford on Sunday, the former England global has now called time on his playing career.

However, Mike Phelan, who spent five years as an assistant manager to the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, mentioned that the 55-year-old could be taking a massive risk regarding his helpers. If Eden Hazard goes to Real Madrid, I'm sure Chelsea would be keen on a swap deal.

"The final chance to cut the cloth clean".

Carrick's addition to the coaching staff isn't the only change at United, with assistant coach Rui Faria ending his 17-year partnership with Mourinho. McKenna, who joined from Tottenham Hotspur two years ago, is highly rated at the club after winning the Under-18 Premier League northern title this season.

However, Carrick's association with United will continue as he will join Jose Mourinho's backroom staff this summer. You can be negative until the point that you say that Scott McTominay, who is a kid who arrived here at nine years old, is not good enough.

"The way it looked to me at the start of the season, is that Mourinho was playing to draw with all the big boys and beat all of the lesser teams". It just fits. Hopefully it still fits in a couple of years' time.

"The particular reason is that I think it will be Michael Carrick in the future, when he has his badges and his pro licence, when he makes the bridge from a player to an assistant", the Red Devils boss added.

Mourinho stated: 'I've to make the selections however in fact my assistants have an opinion.

"It was an unbelievable reception when I came off", Carrick said of Sunday's match. "I'm kind of more excited about the future then looking back and being sad that it's over".

'That's part of being on the staff to work with the manager to try to get what's best for the club, ' said Carrick.

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