Man Utd To Announce Signing After FA Cup Final

And Mourinho has admitted he isn't planning to replace him.

Carrick's lofted pass over the Watford defence found Juan Mata, who unselfishly squared for Marcus Rashford to tap home his 12 of the season.

'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.

However, Phelan, who spent five years as Sir Alex Ferguson's assistant at Old Trafford, believes it is essential for a United boss to have a right-hand man to cope with the expectations.

Faria, who won multiple trophies alongside Jose that included two Champions League honours is set to be the assistant manager of Mancunian club up till the FA Cup final against Chelsea on May 19.

Rui Faria, Jose Mourinho's long-serving assistant, is expected to be offered his first managerial job with Portuguese giants Benfica should they sack their coach.

Many former professionals have criticised the club's wage structure which isn't high compared to the rest of the top-six. Leicester City manager Claude Puel wants to stay at the Premier League club for the remainder of his contract.

Martial was reportedly seen leaving the ground before kick-off, while MUTV later suggested his absence was down to injury. "He had treatment in the morning in the training ground and stayed away".

And Mourinho has confirmed he will speak to Carrick about the club's transfer targets.

"I'm waiting for the doctor but when it's impossible to play today, I have my doubts (for the Cup final)".

Asked if he would be at Vicarage Road next season he was upbeat. In a statement published yesterday, Faria was quoted saying, "After a lot of consideration, and with a very heavy heart, I have decided the time is right for me to move on. As soon as this came up I didn't think twice", he said.

"I'm sure the owner will try to improve the level of the squad and the team, try to improve the position in the table".
