Jose Mourinho's Assistant Rui Faria To Leave Manchester United

Jose Mourinho's Assistant Rui Faria To Leave Manchester United

United earlier published a statement on their website revealing the reason for Martial's omission.

Romelu Lukaku will return to Manchester United on Tuesday in a bid to prove his fitness ahead of the FA Cup final against Chelsea.

"He [Martial] is injured".

Mourinho said: "He was injured, he was injured Friday training session, yesterday [Saturday] couldn't train". He had treatment at the training ground and stayed away.

The France worldwide has been linked with a move away, with Juventus, Chelsea and Tottenham seen as potential destinations for the former Monaco forward.

Over the course of his career at Old Trafford, he's won the Premier League five times, the FA Cup once, the EFL Cup thrice, the FIFA Club World Cup once, the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Champions League one time as well.

"If United beat Chelsea next Saturday - and I really wouldn't be tempted to bet against them - that will be three trophies in the space of 16 months".

Jose Mourinho opted for a change after an hour as Luke Shaw replaced Ashley Young, while Troy Deeney was introduced for Watford minutes later.


Manchester United have the chance to close the Premier League season on a high against Watford this afternoon. Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian, they deserve it. "I am going to bring some people that until this moment have not come with me yet".

This weekend's game got off to a slow start as neither side showed any real attacking intent, despite the home team dominating the possession for most of the half.

"I would like to say a big "thank you" to all the staff and players who, in different ways, have made an important contribution to my growth as a person and as a professional".

Mourinho also confirmed that Carrick will be substituted during the game, to ensure he is given a send-off by the club's fans.

He said: "I will organise my coaching staff in a way where the assistant manager figure doesn't exist".

"I have a lot of memories to cherish, some I'll never forget, especially of this place".

"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".
