Mike Phelan: Jose Mourinho not replacing Rui Faria a gamble

Manchester United must seek a backup for Paul Pogba this summer transfer window if they have any hopes of challenging for the Premier League title next season.

Cesc Fabregas has told Chelsea to "feel the fire inside" in next Saturday's FA Cup final against Manchester United.

Should Vitoria get the chop, Faria would be seriously considered for the vacancy at the club, having confirmed his intention to amicably end his 17-year association with Mourinho.

'The end-game, maybe, if I get into it and I think I'd like to manage - probably at this stage my answer would be yes (I would like to be a manager) but I'm not getting carried away.

'I will support as best I can.

It was a short spell before he moved on to Uniao de Leiria for a season, with his sensational two-year stint at Porto coming shortly after in 2002.

"It's hard because he is my friend, 17 years is a long time", Mourinho added.

"When I was younger I used to get really nervous before games, so much so that you are nearly throwing up", the defender said.

"I'm there to give my opinion". I've got other things to do.

"The final chance to cut the cloth clean".

United finished 19 points off champions Manchester City, but their 81 points was greater than the number achieved during Sir Alex Ferguson's famous treble-winning season in 1998/99. I am extra excited in regards to the future then wanting again and being unhappy it is over.

"From that moment, not just United supporters but the players knew that City were way ahead of them".

Therefore the FA Cup represents their only chance at getting their hands on silverware for the second successive season under Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho.

'You never know what is going to be around the corner.

The club will reportedly announce their agreement with Juventus and Sandro after the FA Cup final on Saturday.

"But, it's a final, it's a big game and I feel that normally in those games you shouldn't have to motivate players to play football because we do what we love and we always have to do it 120 per cent".
