Set to take up a coaching role at United, Carrick recently appeared on the bench against Swansea City in March as part of Mourinho's backroom staff, and the Portuguese tactician believes his current captain has the right attributes to make it as a top-level coach.

But with United also claiming league wins against every team in the top seven, Mourinho admitted he is concerned by the mindset of his players in games against so-called smaller teams and that some of them have now proven to him that they can not live up to his standards. The club had a great man for many, many years playing football and now when his body says it's enough, the club and myself we want to keep the man. A lot of points.

"We need both things", he said.

"I trust some more than others that can bridge that gap", he said, per Wheeler.

Saudi Arabia Says It Will Build Nuclear Bomb if Iran Does
Riyadh has long accused its regional archfoe Tehran of supplying Yemen's rebels with ballistic missiles, a charge Tehran denies. Both the Houthi movement and Iran deny any military con nection-but are politically aligned in regional affairs.

"Unless you can do that, you have to keep players you don't love - when I say love, I say it "footballistically" - and players you don't totally believe have the level of the squad". I understand them better than anybody.

Mourinho has no plans for a major overhaul of his squad, arguing he does not have the finances to buy players at will, which could be interpreted as a criticism of Manchester City.

However, he accepts that United can not offload all the players he believes are not up to scratch.

"So, in this moment, for me, he's staying".

His final game for the club will be on Sunday at home to Watford and his manager has confirmed that the midfielder will start the match as a tribute for his years of service to the club.

However, speaking ahead of his side's clash with West Ham on Thursday night, Mourinho directly addressed Pogba's future.

Mourinho said last month that there is "no chance" goalkeeper David de Gea would be leaving Old Trafford, but he could only guarantee that neither he nor United want to sell Pogba in the upcoming transfer window, and that the player has not asked to leave thus far. "To have the same mentality as I have, is to face every game in the same way". It is not like you always lose against the big teams because you are afraid of them or you always lose against the small teams because you don't respect them.
