"Manchester United have had a good season in the league in finishing second but it has been inconsistent and they have dipped at times".

Vitoria has by no means been a failure at Benfica, the 48-year-old - who is in his third year at the club - won the Portuguese title on his first two attempts, but this year he missed out to Sergio Conceicao's Porto in the league. The United manager is losing his right-hand man of the past 17 years after the FA Cup final against Chelsea on Saturday because he wants to become a manager.

"You have to feel the fire inside of you, the hunger you want to show on the pitch and this is something neither me or the coach can bring to the players", he said, as quoted by Sky Sports. "I know he's going to do a good job for his team".

"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".

"I've done it because I think in these last few matches of the season everyone deserves a start".

'He is one of the best, he's been around for many years and it all fits in.

Marcus Morris on previous LeBron defenders: 'Them dudes can't guard'
LeBron James came out with an incredible first quarter , scoring 21 of his team's 27 points to spark an early lead for the Cavs . In the end, James still had an incredible overall showing, going for 42 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists for a triple-double.

'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'.

He will no doubt be missed as part of the first-team setup but with this new challenge in the career of the one-time Champions League victor, it will be interesting to see if he can take to his new position with the same level of success as he did his last.

The former England midfielder hung up his boots on Sunday after United's final Premier League game of the season against Watford.

Despite securing a runner-up finish in the Premier League and making their way through to the FA Cup final, the Red Devils have once again faced accusations of flopping in 2017-18.

He said: 'You've got to go step by step. "I've got six or seven weeks off after the cup final". "I'm kind of more excited about the future then looking back and being sad that it's over".
