Cape Town - Manchester United manager Jose
Mourinho has revealed that he may consider Michael Carrick as a future
candidate to be his assistant manager.
Mourinho is set to part ways with current
assistant Rui Faria after the FA Cup final against Chelsea.
The pair have been working together for
over 17 years but Faria has now decided to move on.
The United boss has stated that he won't
replace Faria with a new assistant manager straight away, but added that he
would consider Carrick once he is qualified to do the job.
"I think it will be Michael Carrick in
the future, when he has his badges, his pro licence, when he makes the bridge
between a player to an assistant," said Mourinho, according to Sky Sports.
"People think it's just like one day
I'm a player and the next day I'm a coach, but it's not like that.
"I have nobody in the world of
football ready to be my assistant manager, so I prefer to educate people and to
structure my staff in a way where there is education and improvement.
"And when Michael has the pro licence
badges, normally with the personality, friendship and honesty he has, I think
it will be for him.
"But I'm going to improve my staff in
the performance level and, in relation to the tactical work, I'm going to bring
some people that, until this moment, have not come with me yet."
