EPL: Mourinho explains why he won't have assistant manager next season

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been critical of Pogba since his return from injury, particularly his lack of defensive discipline in a midfield partnership with Nemanja Matic.

"In the future, when he has his badges, when he has his pro license".

"I think it will be Michael Carrick", Mourinho told reporters when asked about a new assistant manager.

Michael Carrick signed off his Premier League career by creating the only goal of the game as Manchester United beat Watford 1-0 on the final day of the season.

"We've had ups and downs this season but we have finished second and we thank you very much".

The 36-year-old club skipper - who during his 12 years at the club has won 18 trophies, including five Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2008 - will join manager Jose Mourinho's coaching staff for next term.

"On behalf of myself, a massive thank you to everyone for your support".

Equally forceful was his colleague, Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire, who said Europe had to defend its "economic sovereignty". Europeans fear a collapse of the nuclear deal could raise the risk of deepening conflicts in the Middle East.

If he does miss the final, Marcus Rashford could make the starting XI.

In their two seasons together in England, relations have been more restrained than the occasional immoderacy that characterised their time as respective managers of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

"This is an awesome place to play football and it's the greatest club in the world".

Carrick is set to play his final Premier League game for United when the Red Devils host Watford at Old Trafford on Sunday. He was injured on Friday, yesterday he couldn't train.

"I've been so lucky to play with him for years and hopefully I can enjoy him as an assistant".

Lukaku, United's leading scorer in the league with 16, sustained an ankle injury in last month's victory over Arsenal and travelled back to Belgium to recover. "He had treatment in the morning [on Sunday] at the training ground".

"I'm sure the owner will try to improve the level of the squad and the team, try to improve the position in the table".
