Jose Mourinho hails "unbelievable" Michael Carrick

Jose Mourinho hails

Manchester United finished their league season with 81 points from their 38 games but there were still 19 points off Manchester City, who cruised towards the Premier League crown.

And it was Rashford who was the match-winner yesterday after Juan Mata squared him the ball following a sumptuous pass from Michael Carrick.

According to a report in the Telegraph, Mourinho's former assistant is going to be the new manager of Benfica.

Carrick's appearance on Sunday, in otherwise unremarkable final Premier League game of the season, was his 464th and last for United.

The following day he began his new job as a member of manager Jose Mourinho's coaching staff, with this weekend's clash against Chelsea at Wembley his first assignment.

"That is what every Manchester United fan wants and what Jose Mourinho wants".

Carrick said: "I'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone for their support over the years, it's been unbelievable". The 24-year-old is widely reckoned as the one of the best performing right-backs over the past 24 months and United are supposedly keen on his signature after knowing of his relatively cheap £44m release clause.

"I'm going to have coaches, assistant coaches, fitness coaches and a structure where we have specialists in different areas, connected to the performance by analysts".

Mourinho added: "I will miss my friend and that is the hardest thing for me, but his happiness is more important and, of course, I respect his decision, especially because I know that we will always be together".

"I'm there to give my opinion".

And when Michael has the pro licence badges, normally with the personality, friendship and honesty he has, I think it will be for him. I've been at this club, such a great club, I obviously know the club and manager, learning off him, the backroom staff, trying to bring the kids through and have an influence on that.

Silverware, domestic and continental, has eluded them and the FA Cup is the last chance of ending the 2017-18 campaign on a high.

Cheaper, lighter Microsoft Surface tablets may be coming this year
Unfortunately, like Microsoft's higher-end Surface devices, the new models won't ship with a keyboard or stylus in the box. The new tablets will continue to have the kickstand for upright typing and watching video, and will run Windows 10 Pro.
