Mourinho not replacing Faria is a gamble: Phelan

Mourinho not replacing Faria is a gamble: Phelan”

David de Gea kept 18 clean sheets to win the Premier League Golden Glove, and the club can still end the season with silverware as they take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final this weekend.

However, at fierce rivals club Manchester United, Jose Mourinho's assistant Rui Faria has made a decision to step down as the "Special One's" number two man.

The Red Devils were 1-0 winners against Watford in their final Premier League game of the season to finish in second place behind champions Manchester City. I have nobody in the world of football ready to be assistant manager.

The 42-year-old spent two years at Old Trafford following successful spells under Mourinho at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

He added: "I'm there for me to give my opinion".

"It was an unbelievable reception when I came off", Carrick said of Sunday's match. "But it is a hard role, you need somebody to talk to because you can't bounce things off people if they're not there".

"I'm going to organise my coaching staff next season in a way where the assistant-manager doesn't exist", Mourinho said. He'll teach me some things and we're going to have some success in the near future, I'm certain of that.

'He is one of the best, he's been around for many years and it all fits in.

If pretty much every outlet in Italy is to be believed, the Lazio star, should he leave, would cost clubs at least €100m, which the Serie A side are already thinking of reinvesting, having already targeted a replacement.

While replacing a player of Carrick's calibre is problematic, the reality is United have familiarised themselves with that conundrum during the season.

Mourinho's current top assistant, Rui Faria, will be leaving the club in the summer to pursue the next level of furthering his career.

They finished with four points more than Tottenham, but Spurs never really looked like a team that could get past United in the standings.
