Mourinho drilling Carrick for coaching role
Club captain Michael Carrick was on the bench on Saturday, only as a coach
The 36-year-old is set to retire this summer and join Jose Mourinho's coaching staff. As United beat Swansea City 2-0, Carrick already had his first experience.
Mourinho says: "It's only for next season really but, this season, he is already coming and sharing a little bit of our space. We are opening the door for him to not have a difficult transition next season. So, this season, he's doing little things.
"He is learning, not the football of course, but the other side of the life and I think it's a good experience for him until the end of the season. Maybe, in three or four matches, it's another experience for him to share the bench from a different perspective."
