"He was injured, he was injured Friday training session, yesterday couldn't train".

"My heartfelt thanks go to the manager, Jose Mourinho, for the belief he had in me, all those years ago, when it all was just a student dream".

He will be working as member of the club's back-room staff after the curtains are drawn following the weekend's games and the FA Cup final against Chelsea. If he does miss the final, Marcus Rashford could make the starting XI.

"I've been so lucky to play with him for years and hopefully I can enjoy him as an assistant".

Ferguson was also on boss Jose Mourinho's mind as he considered Carrick's contribution to United over the course of 464 appearances and five title-winning campaigns. It's a new moment for me. So, we are the second best in the Premier League and we are one of the two best in the FA Cup.

The midfielder, who will join Jose Mourinho's coaching staff next term, said: "I'm going to keep this one brief as I got a lot of stick for speaking too much at my testimonial previous year!"

Shadab Khan and debutant Faheem Ashraf saved the day for Pakistan against Ireland as wickets kept falling at Malahide on Saturday. Using the pressure of the early wickets, Ireland went on the aggressive, often having five fielders in the slip cordon.

"This is an incredible place to play football and it's the greatest club in the world".

Reports emerged that he had been seen driving away from the stadium in the hours before kick-off but Mourinho revealed a knee injury had kept him out.

"He [Martial] is injured. He had treatment in the morning in the training ground and stayed away".

Meanwhile, Mourinho had a positive update on Romelu Lukaku, as he added, "I'm waiting for the doctor but when it's impossible to play today, I have my doubts (for the cup final)".

Asked if he would be at Vicarage Road next season he was upbeat.

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.
