Michael Carrick bids farewell as Man United see off Watford

Michael Carrick bids farewell as Man United see off Watford

Manager Jose Mourinho gave the crowd the chance to show their appreciation to Carrick with five minutes remaining, bringing off the 36-year-old and replacing him with Pogba.

Carrick, who is unlikely to be picked for Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea on Saturday and will assume a coaching role at United next season, was treated to a guard of honour by both teams before kick off.

"I can call Sir Alex the intelligent one to buy him and I can call him the happy one to have him for so many years of his career as a phenomenal player", said the Portuguese. "He'll teach me some things and we're going to have some success in the near future, I'm certain of that".

"It's hard because he is my friend, 17 years is a long time", Mourinho said after beating Watford. I have nobody in the world of football ready to be assistant manager.

"I will organise my coaching staff in a way where the assistant manager figure doesn't exist".

Marcus Rashford got the only goal of the game but Carrick was hugely influential in the goal, playing an inch-perfect long ball to spark the attack. I think the Liverpool game, because of the history and the tradition and everything that goes behind it, it run deeps doesn't it?

They needed only a point to head off Chelsea and seal the fourth remaining spot in Europe's premier club competition next season. Key Opta stats: - Stoke secured their first league double over the Swans since 1992-93, when they were in the third tier.

Mourinho said: "He was injured, he was injured Friday training session, yesterday [Saturday] couldn't train. He had treatment in the morning in the training ground and stayed away".

A suitable bridge between players and the United manager is needed since that relationship is too strained too often. Each Carrick pass tugged on the heartstrings of those at Old Trafford.

"I know that Romelu will be back for Tuesday because he's in the last week [of rehabilitation] and we have to see but Anthony I have no more".

As for Watford, head coach Javi Gracia made three changes to the team that started against Newcastle United last weekend, with Heurelho Gomes, Gerard Deulofeu and Richarlison coming in for Orestis Karnezis, Etienne Capoue and Troy Deeney. The Spaniard timed his run perfectly and teed up a simple finish for Rashford.

Asked about Martial's prospects of being fit for the Cup final, Mourinho said: "I don't know".

"I think they're different games really".
