Jose Mourinho, after Saturday’s 1-0 Premier League win against Brighton & Hove Albion F.C., stated in a press conference that club captain Michael Carrick has been offered a coaching role after he hangs up his boots.
This Friday, the 36-year-old fan favourite released a statement notifying that he had undergone a heart procedure, popularly known as cardiac ablation.
The Englishman has not featured for the Red Devils since September. He is expected to return only next month, in the home game against CSKA Moscow.
“Michael as a person is more important than Michael as a player,” Mourinho expressed at the news conference on Saturday.
“We gave him the time to relax, to recover and to feel confident, to make the decision he wants to play, he wants to stop. He knows that my coaching staff has the chair for him if he wants.
“When he wants the chair, it is there in the office for him. I want that, the board wants that and the owner wants that. So Michael is in a comfortable situation. His future will be with us.”
