"We are confident", said Mourinho. "I never have anything negative to say about the professionalism of my players during the season - this week was not different. He is the one who brought me to the club and gave me that opportunity to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world".

Speaking on the subject of his former manager, Rafael admitted he was crying when he heard the news and hailed Ferguson as a father figure.

"Of course he has qualities that we believe can make him a good coach and there are many ways to do the bridge between player and coaching staff".

He also confirmed Michael Carick will START United's last game of the season against the Hornets at Old Trafford.

Mourinho claimed credit for involving Ferguson in Wenger's pre-match tribute, on the grounds that the Scot was his "real rival, especially at Manchester United". "It's a tough time for everyone but I'm thinking positive and hoping he will pull through".
