Faria, who won multiple trophies alongside Jose that included two Champions League honours is set to be the assistant manager of Mancunian club up till the FA Cup final against Chelsea on May 19.
United wrapped up their Premier League campaign on Sunday with a 1-0 win over Watford at Old Trafford.
The 36-year-old club captain will not be a direct replacement...
"I'm going to organise my coaching staff next season in a way where the assistant-manager doesn't exist", Mourinho said. This was the final chance to cut the cloth clean.
Phelan explained that Mourinho is taking a gamble by opting not to have a number two man at the club as it's important to have essential knowledge of the game, "It's a gamble for him - he's saying he hasn't got anybody in that group already to replace Faria, whether he goes looking outside who knows?" I obviously know the club and manager and will be learning off him, the backroom staff, trying to bring the kids through and have an influence on that.
"I think it will be Michael Carrick in the future when he has his badges, his pro licence". I am sure he will teach me a few things and we will have some success in the near future, I am certain of that. I'm well aware of that.

Real Madrid will be on his mind, but having played for The Catalan giants across the country, he might prefer not to dig himself a hole there, making United's move possible. This will add another dimension to a Manchester United attack that has looked pale for most of this season. There will be other players.
