The former England midfielder also said he meant to be a "pest" by picking the brains of as many people as possible as he embarks on his foray into coaching and potentially management in the future. "It changes overnight. I am not training this week".
Don Balon say Pogba is aware of United's eagerness to land Kroos and has been taken aback, fearing he may miss out on a place in Mourinho's team going forward.
"I'm going to have assistant coaches, I'm going to have fitness coaches, and a structure where they have specialists in different areas connected to the performance".
Carrick, who signed his first professional deal at West Ham in 1998, made more than 700 senior appearances in a career spanning 20 years.
"He's been around for many years. I've been at this club, and it is such a great club, so I obviously know the club and the manager", he said.
Thus, Jose Mourinho should be on notice, and you know he will be as Mourinho has already intimated the idea that Carrick could be his top lieutenant in the future.
On being questioned whether he wishes to move into management in the future, Carrick insisted that is not something he wants to push for at this moment.
"If that moment arrives, I will be a very proud guy because this man came to me when he was a kid 17 years ago. Hopefully it still fits in a couple of years' time".
He said: 'You've got to go step by step. It's not just game to game but half to half. I'm well aware of that. "I have nobody in the world of football to be my assistant manager - nobody", Mourinho continued.
He was substituted late in the game to a huge ovation, with supporters recognising his role in five Premier League title successes and one Champions League triumph.
'I'm not sad about it, ' he said.
"The way it looked to me at the start of the season, is that Mourinho was playing to draw with all the big boys and beat all of the lesser teams".
United will have the chance to give their captain the flawless sending off when they take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final on May 19.
