"Today he just changes office [to take coaching role at the club]".

Jose Mourinho has backed Michael Carrick to become his assistant manager in the future now the 36-year-old has retired from professional football.

"They finished second and could win the FA Cup but let's face it... this is one of the most boring United teams", Redknapp told the Daily Mail.

"That's the measure of the club and has been for 60, 70, 80 years, it has to be the league title you are measured by, but to keep winning trophies would show they are still a club that are winning things and keeping that winning mentality".

The Manchester United midfielder captained his side for the final time during a 1-0 win over Watford on the last day of the season. "Because I've got things, I'm kind of more excited about the future than looking back and being sad that it's over".

But the English player now has revealed that he will make an immediate switch to the coaching team under manager Jose Mourinho this Saturday and is desirous to learn from one of best coaches in the world.

Mourinho's current top assistant, Rui Faria, will be leaving the club in the summer to pursue the next level of furthering his career. "I've been at this club, and it is such a great club, so I obviously know the club and the manager". "Hopefully it still fits in a couple of years' time".

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. "It is an unbelievable opportunity for me. I've got six or seven weeks off after the cup final".

Carrick's move to the dugout means he is the latest former United player to move into coaching.

Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Juventus have all emerged as suitors to sign a player who cost United £36million three years ago.

He said: 'I need to thank Jose for giving me the opportunity.

But Shaw has implied that he plans to remain at Old Trafford by noting how Carrick, despite not playing, would remain close to the Man United squad next season.
