Jose Mourinho drops intriguing hint about his next assistant manager

This will be Chelsea's 13th FA Cup final.

Looking to add another trophy to his haul of two won thus far with United, the Chelsea boss Antonio Conte finds himself in a similarly dispiriting role as Mourinho did in 2007.

Meanwhile, the Brazil global still has a running contract with the Stamford Bridge outfit until the summer of 2020. It would be harsh on Caballero but a win could save Conte his job so he needs to make the tough call.

He also guided the club to second place in the Premier League this season, and yet some supporters have been unhappy about Mourinho's conservative brand of football and of his management of their top stars.

Executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward said talk of the creation of a 24-team Club World Cup tournament illustrated the importance of the game to broadcasters.

He was rewarded for his efforts by landing both the Premier League and League Managers Association Manager of the Year awards at the LMA awards dinner on Tuesday evening.

"But to finish on a high would be nice".

This season Conte used the Italian phrase "demenza senile" in relation to the United manager, which translates as senile dementia with Mourinho responding by alluding to Conte's match-fixing suspension at his former club Siena, which he was later acquitted of.

When things are going well, all these things feed into a team's morale and right now, Chelsea are a pale shadow of the united group which won the Premier League under Conte a year ago.

Manchester United recorded a 2-1 win when the two teams last locked horns in the Premier League in February but Antonio Conte side won the first leg 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

And Mourinho recently hinted to making a lucrative signing when he said: "I think that a team without a Brazilian isn't a team".

But win or lose, Fabregas, 31, said he was full of admiration for the man who signed him for Chelsea in 2014, during Mourinho's second spell in charge at Stamford Bridge. He's also had great success in this competition with Arsenal as well. "Now I'm always hungry for it - just the results and the trophies". "They've got a lot of big players and big players always turn up in big games". Jose makes a difference and writes history because the future of his clubs will never be the same after him, because when he comes he brings a warpath as a manager.

"The way he treated me, the way he made me feel, how he let me be a leader of the team from day one". "It is thanks to him".
