Jose Mourinho offers Michael Carrick managerial role at Manchester united

Manchester United captain, Michael Carrick, have been offered a coaching role at the club, this was confirmed after the ex-England international announced he had received treatment for an irregular heart rhythm.

Carrick issued a statement on the eve of United’s 1-0 win over Brighton on Saturday that revealed he had undergone a procedure to correct the problem.

The midfielder suffered dizzy spells during a League Cup win over Burton in September and has only recently been cleared to resume training with Mourinho’s first team.

But the United manager confirmed he had offered Carrick the coaching role had the England international decided to retire following the diagnosis and that the job is waiting for him if he decides to retire at the end of his current contract in June.

“Michael as a person is more important than Michael as a player,” said the United manager. “We gave him the time to relax, to recover, to feel confident, to make the decision — wants to play, wants to stop.

“He knows that my coaching staff has a chair for him, if he wants, when he wants. The chair is in the office for him. I want that, the board want that, the owners want that.

“Michael is in a comfortable position — the future is with us. But he wants to play until the end of the season and now he feels confident to be back. He is one more option for us.”
