BBC website reports that Carlos has hinted that he is considering leaving the club.

Only worry i would have if he did leave would be Ronaldo, Anderson and Nani. He was said to be very instrumental in persuading Ronaldo to come back after the world cup, and also that he was a big factor in Nani and Anderson being persuaded to come to the club (not sure how true them facts are though).

Last time an assistant manager left us halfway through a season was in 98\99 wasnt it ?? Didnt we go on to win the treble then ???:)

although carlos can speak to these young players in portugeuse (nani, anderson, )
i very much doubt that he was the reason they signed for unted, they signed coz we are the biggest club in the world, have a excellent young team and the best manager thats ever lived

to say carlos was a big factor in them coming to united is laughable

and as for ronaldo decision to stay was down to carlos is bull shit aswell don't you remember fergie going to france to talk to cantona into come back to united
and also talking roy keane out of retirement a few years back when he told the gaffer he was quitting

if he wants to go let him im sure there will be no shortage of top quality replacements queing up to take his job

Keep Carlos, despite him sometimes being critisised for his tactics i still believe he is vital especially to the younger players like Ronaldo, nani, Anderson.

I don't think many United fans would be sad to see him go. I think many blame him for United's reluctance to play 4-4-2 in big games, especially in Europe.

I'd like to see him stay, he's been a father figure for ronaldo since the world cup. However if he choses to leave I think it might be after Euro 2008, possibly to replace scolari as portugal coach?

Manchester United assistant manager Carlos Queiroz has denied he is ready to walk out on the club and insists he wants "to be a part of" their future.

The Portuguese coach is currently in his second spell as Sir Alex Ferguson's number two at Old Trafford, but reports on Wednesday suggested he may be ready to consider his options at the end of this year.

Ferguson himself recently highlighted Queiroz as his likely successor, although there is no suggestion the Scot will be ready to relinquish his role any time soon.

But rather than suffering from itchy feet as he awaits his promotion to the Red Devils hotseat, Queiroz insists he is content to remain in his current job.

"It is just a misunderstanding, for sure," he told Sky Sports News in Portugal ahead of United's opening Champions League clash with Sporting Lisbon tonight.

"I don't understand why that has come up, but the most important thing is that I'm happy, I'm very happy with the job and the position at Manchester United.

"The club is happy with me, so there's no reason to waste time with that issue."

He added: "There is nothing to comment about that because there is no sense to it."

Queiroz, 54, is thought to have played a key role in United's plundering of the Portuguese league this summer for some of the SuperLiga's top young talent in the form of Nani and Anderson.

And with that promising duo being added to more established young superstars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney, the former Real Madrid coach is adamant there are few reasons to want to leave in the near future.

"Especially at this moment, we have made a lot of decisions with a medium and long-term view," he added.

"We expect a lot of things from our youngest players, talented players that we have got in the last season.

"So there are a lot of hopes and expectations about the future, and I want to be part of that future - it is really a big challenge for all of us."

Hes a great asset and everything especially for the developing players (Nani, Anderson, Ronny) and is great.
But, if he wants to leave we may as well let him, i wouldnt mind seeing him do a bit of management. I think we could bring in a decent replacement e.g. that Pako guy from liverpool.
What i want to know is ... ? Who would do the MOTD interviews if he left :p

I think your right on the money matey! I don't know if he is a good manager but he can't be that bad an assistant because he is at the best club in the world ;)

he's a great number two so i really dont want him to go because in the time he has been here he has helped us a lot but i think its more to the nani and anderson thing on how they joined united butm i agree he did have a big impact on it.

I think he does a good job as an assistant - so long as he doesn't get any input as to what formation we play!

He seems to organise training well, has to take some credit in getting Nani and Anderson as well as bringing on Ronaldo. We also seemed to lose a bit when he left last time.

As for him being Fergie's successor, he does seem the logical choice but good assistants might not make good managers, I think he still has a lot to prove in regards to that, esp as he got sacked from a top European club, although to be fair they even sack you if you win the league at that place! Plus I for one have never liked his formation settings.

I would like to see it kept in the family I think; keep the mantra of the way we play.

I'm hoping Keano succeeds as a Manager If not sparky is a good bet. The one thing I esp like about him is that he's really polished a turd in Blackburn. Got the defence sorted. Knows a good striker + they all respect him. And it seems like he knows what's req'd in a midfield - He can even control savage for gawds sake! Plays Tuguy in certain games. So he clearly knows the importance of a player like him. I don't think he's had one duff signing... Also, he was the only manager to do a good job with Wales.

Keano has got a lot to live up to with him, leave alone Fergie.

I don't think we should worry too much about a lack of European experience, so long as the next manager, whomever that may be has a good record of performing in the league, punching above their weight if you will and gets their team on a good cup run occasionally (even this is hard to measure at lower placed clubs in Prem due to smaller squads and the Prem being so impt financially, cups don't matter so much).

European success may take a bit longer if we choose someone like that - it took a while under Fergie and each team we have it still takes them a couple of seasons if not more to reach their potential in Europe. Some teams just don't do that well in Europe as a whole. The post Beckham / Yorke era for us wasn't very succesful until recently. It's difficlut to put a finger on why, tho I think our movement as a team was a lot better last season, and that was the second team really after Becks and co...

I think he plays a major part with our Portugues players tempting them to come here in the first place plus the fact if he goes will they!!

Imagine what Queiroz could now bring to Chelsea

Logically Carlos is ManU's next manager when SAF decides to call it a day.
This current squad will have the best chance for continued success only if Carlos takes charge IMHO. Carlos has been significantly involved in assembling the current squad (not just the Portugues players) and the style of play since he returned from Madrid.
I would bet any other choice to take over from SAF will be in and out the door within a single season.
I'm a huge Keano fan and want to see him take over at some point but he would not have much success with the current squad...they just don't suit his approach to the game. Plus he's only 35 year old and needs to finish what he started at Sunderland...and we all know he isn't a quitter so he'll want to finish his job in the Northeast before he moves on to new challanges. I honestly don't see Keano coming back to United until he's in his mid to late 40's...he'll want to ceate his own team.
I think its best for United if Carlos is the next manager. He'll see the current squad, which has huge potential, as his own.
I'm not a big fan of Sparky's tactics and while he has done wonders both in Wales and at Rovers I don't see how his approach to the game will suit the current United team.
I hope Carlos stays...Keano is for the future, 10+ years in the future.

If He leaves who will they be able to get in place in time to do SAF MOTD interviews???

The only thing we need from him is his language

He is the father figure for Ronaldo
