Manchester United fans digest news that Mourinho will not replace Faria

Manchester United confirmed over the weekend that Jose Mourinho’s right-hand man Rui Faria will leave the club at the end of the season.

The Portuguese coach has worked alongside Mourinho for the past 17 years, but has decided to break away from the partnership.

Faria’s last game in the United dugout will be the FA Cup final against former club Chelsea at Wembley on May 19.

It is unclear what steps the United assistant manager will take next, but Mourinho has made it clear that he will not hire a new number two.

After overseeing his Red Devils earn a 1-0 victory over Watford on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday, Mourinho revealed to reporters that he will not replace Faria.

However, Michael Carrick, who played his final league game for United at the weekend, will begin working towards being a part of the manager’s coaching setup.

Some United fans have been left disappointed by the decision, while others are speculating about what the future holds.
