‘Not necessary’ – Man United fans on Twitter not convinced by Mourinho’s update

The Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to the news that Jose Mourinho has no plans to replace his departing assistant manager, Rui Faria. After the FA Cup final, Faria is set to depart Mourinho despite having worked as his right-hand man for 17 years since his early days in Portugal.

Jose Mourinho announced before the Watford game that Rui Faria would be leaving Old Trafford and splitting with Mourinho at the end of the season after the FA Cup final. However, as Michael Carrick’s already agreed to a role on the United coaching staff when he hangs his boots up after this Saturday, it could be a matter of time before the 36-year-old is occupying the seat next to Mourinho in the Old Trafford dugout.

The former Inter Milan and Real Madrid gaffer claimed that he would be switching up his coaching staff and trying to get by without a number two, instead focusing on having coaches playing different roles and being connected via analysts. The fans will be optimistic that when their ex-England international Michael Carrick has got his coaching badges and is ready that he will be the one taking up the number two job for Mourinho, whether that’s at United or elsewhere.
