And when Chris Smalling doubled United’s lead just before the break from a set-piece, the Portuguese punched the air in delight and hugged McKenna.

It was later revealed the defender’s strike was down to the 32-year-old Northern Irishman taking charge of set-piece drills at Carrington last week.

Mourinho said after the Watford win: “We trained the corner during the week.

“The best thing that can happen to coaches is you train and you see it happen in the match.

“And they are happening even in these last few matches, even in the one against Tottenham, are happening things that are working, the positional, the movement.

“But the set-pieces are very specific things that you work, you work, you work and for weeks and weeks and weeks sometimes you don’t see the results of that work.

“So when it happens was happiness for the coaching staff.”

McKenna was a young professional at Spurs but was forced to retire aged just 21 with a persistent hip injury.

The boyhood United fan joined White Hart coaching staff working with the Under-18’s in 2014.

Two years later McKenna took on the same role at Old Trafford and his excellent work has been rewarded with a place on the bench alongside Mourinho and new first-team coach Michael Carrick.
