'Carrick still has a role to play at United' - Mourinho

'Carrick still has a role to play at United' - Mourinho”

Mourinho has opted for both Nemanja Matic and Marouane Fellaini ahead of the pair but he said Carrick and Herrera would get their chance.

Herrera was player of the season and he is not starting matches. You know, that's life at big clubs.

"Sergio Romero played the Europa League final which was the game of the season for us and he's not playing".

His current contract is set expire at the end of this season by which time the midfielder will have turned thirty and the club have a policy of offering players of that age one year rolling deals though Fellaini is likely to want a longer stay. That's life in big clubs. "We can not play with [only] 11 guys".

"To me they are looking a lot better than before in terms of breaking sides down and killing off games".

"I always thought that he was a player with special qualities and players with special qualities are players with a place in your team or in your squad", Mourinho told United's official website.

He said: "He [Carrick] is in a team with these two guys, playing absolutely phenomenal".

"I think we managers are guilty many times of good things the players do and we are also guilty of bad things, or players not performing as well as they could do".

"Our squad is good, but we don't have 30 players". We have what we have, and with a couple of injuries now with Pogba and [Axel] Tuanzebe, so we need some of the players that played [on Sunday] to play, and we need some of them on the bench, because we need to have a strong team.

Matic has won the club's Man of the Match award twice already this season for his dominant displays against West Ham United and Everton, while Fellaini has scored twice as a substitute against Leicester City and FC Basel and claimed the prize for star player in the UEFA Champions League success over the Swiss champions.
