Michael Carrick shows class during Manchester United farewell

Jose Mourinho has revealed that Manchester United forward Anthony Martial is suffering from a knee injury that puts his FA Cup final participation in doubt.

"The particular reason is I think it will be Michael Carrick in the future when he has his badges, pro licence, when he makes the bridge between being a player to assistant".

Once described by former United captain Nemanja Vidic as "the glue that holds it all together", Carrick said he was looking forward to a new role in the dugout next to the club's manager Jose Mourinho.

"I am going to have assistant coaches, I am going to have fitness coaches and a structure where they have specialists in different areas connected to the performance".

"It's hard to believe it's not Scholes", chorused Old Trafford throughout, "it's Carrick don't you know". "It's the greatest club in the world so it's been beyond my wildest dreams as a young kid".

The soon-to-be-retiring midfielder played a superb ball over the top of the Watford defence for Juan Mata and the Spaniard squared for Marcus Rashford to tap home for 1-0.

Alexis Sanchez, who might also have sat out had Anthony Martial not pulled out injured, had United's first chance but sliced wide from Mata's cross.

"He was injured in the Friday training session and yesterday (Saturday) he couldn't train. He had treatment at the training ground", added the United boss.

Speaking post-match after the win against Watford, Mourinho provided injury updates on Martial and also Lukaku amid fears both could miss the FA Cup final.

"Yes, I think so", was his brief assessment.

The Old Lady outfit will reportedly demand a fee north of £55 million, and if the Mancunians meet this requirement, the left-back could end up surpassing the likes of Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker to become the most expensive full-back of all time.

"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".
