Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, Redknapp said: "They finished second and could win the FA Cup but let's face it... this is one of the most boring United teams".

Carrick played his 464 and final game for United in Sunday's 1-0 win against Watford at Old Trafford and has now ceased training as a player in order to become part of the backroom set-up under Mourinho.

'And of course I have to make the decisions but of course my assistants have an opinion and he has, obviously in relation to his position. a different vision than any other opinion than you can have from any scout or analysis department'.

Once described by former United captain Nemanja Vidic as "the glue that holds it all together", Carrick said he was looking forward to a new role in the dugout next to the club's manager Jose Mourinho.

The 55-year-old Englishman was asked by Premier League Daily whether or not Jose will miss an assistant like Faria, to which Phelan replied, "That's a good question. But it is a hard role, you need somebody to talk to because you can't bounce things off people if they're not there". "Hopefully it still fits in a couple of years" time'. "It is an unbelievable opportunity for me".

'I'm not sad about it, ' he said. Huge players, bigger than me, and the club has moved on and still been successful.

"I had the issue when I signed and it was all about Roy Keane, but I was never going to replace Roy Keane because it's not how I am".

This term the veteran has been restricted to just five outings in all competitions due to a heart condition, but there is no doubt that United will find him hard to replace in the summer.
