New Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho's backroom staff have been confirmed.
Trusted lieutenant Rui Faria has become the assistant manager at Old Trafford, a post previously held by Ryan Giggs who ended his 29-year association with the club last weekend.
Faria first met Mourinho at Barcelona before he worked as his fitness coach during his time in charge of Uniao de Leiria in Portugal and followed him to Chelsea (twice), Inter Milan and Real Madrid.
Coaches Silvino Louro, who has been with Mourinho for more than a decade having started out as his goalkeeping coach, Ricardo Formosinho and Carlos Lalin - who also have previous experience working with the Portuguese - and Emilio Alvarez have all been confirmed as members of the backroom staff along with analyst Giovanni Cerra.
