Jose Mourinho’s son Zuca joins Manchester United coaching staff on bench for Swansea win

JOSE MOURINHO’S son joined the Manchester United manager and his coaching staff on the bench for their league win over Swansea.

Carrick has stepped up his post-playing career coaching dreams by sitting on the bench alongside Mourinho.

The 36-year-old has previously announced he is hanging up his boots at the end of the season having suffered from heart problems and dizziness during matches and the Red Devils boss is giving Carrick a taste of life as a coach.

A picture posted on Twitter by the former England international shows Zuca in a full United tracksuit walking besides other assistants.

In a documentary televised on Portuguese television last year, Mourinho joked his son would later replace some of his staff.

Happy birthday 👹❤

Mourinho said: “One day, after a period of a few bad results, he comes up with some analysis.

“Obviously suffering because Dad wasn’t doing well, we had lost to Watford and Man City [in September 2016] I think. And he came with the stats of the team, I showed them to my assistants and I told them, be careful as one day this boy will take one of your places.

“I compare him with me at his age, where I would try do the same sort of things for my dad, of course with different technology methods, but analysis from a kid now aged 17, but 16 then.”

Mourinho’s son signed a two-year scholarship as a goalkeeper with Fulham in 2016 but his contract was cancelled by mutual consent in March last year.

Manchester United beat Swansea 1-0 on Saturday.
