I've had ups and downs at the club over the years.

Mourinho's current top assistant, Rui Faria, will be leaving the club in the summer to pursue the next level of furthering his career.

Faria says that he is to take time to spend with his family before he considers taking up a new challenge in the game, in words which may suggest he is not set for Arsenal.

He said: "17 years.in Leiria, Porto, London, Milan, Madrid, London again and Manchester".

Faria has been with Mourinho since the starting of Mourinho's career and the pair has been managing sides for nearly 17 years.

"That is the hardest thing for me but his happiness is more important and, of course, I respect his decision".

"And when Michael has the pro licence badges, normally with the personality, friendship and honesty he has, I think it will be for him".

United, who finished second behind champions Manchester City, will be going up against Mourinho's former club at Wembley.

AAA Michigan: Statewide average gas prices up 7 cents
As of Sunday afternoon, the Colorado average was $2.72 a gallon, which is the cheapest in the Rockies region. Overall, the national average of gas prices has risen 15 cents per gallon during the last month.

British media reported that the 42-year-old Faria is on Arsenal's shortlist to replace Arsene Wenger, who will leave the north London club after nearly 22 years in charge.

Thus, Jose Mourinho should be on notice, and you know he will be as Mourinho has already intimated the idea that Carrick could be his top lieutenant in the future.

United managed without Martial and Lukaku today as Marcus Rashford scored the victor during a 1-0 victory over Watford but Mourinho will be praying he has more options in attack next weekend.

"I say it because, more than because he is my assistant, he is my friend", he told reporters (via BBC Sport).

"I met him when he was a kid at university and we worked together for 18 years".

"No, to be honest, I just want to play my football, it's got nothing to do with Jose", he said. He is a big friend more than an assistant.

Although both teams seemed to go through the motions on a sunny day at Old Trafford, a moment of magic from Carrick settled the contest when he rolled back the years to delight the home crowd.

Interestingly, Faria isn't the only assistant coach based in north-west England associated with the Arsenal job, Zeljko Buvac - who serves as Jurgen Klopp's number two at Liverpool - was also linked with the Arsenal gig though it remains to be seen if either are officially approached.
