Jose Mourinho Looks To Europa League Final After Tottenham Hotspur Defeat

Manchester United manager José Mourinho has stated that he doesn't want to play anymore Premier League games ahead of their Europa League final, having tasted their second consecutive Premier League loss with the 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. A win against United, followed up by a win on Sunday against Stoke will get Saints to 51 points and most possibly eighth position, which to be fair to Puel is not terribly bad for a team that has its stars regularly plucked out by bigger teams in the league and that reached the final of the League Cup earlier in the season.

That means their only hope of Champions League qualification rests with beating Ajax in Stockholm on May 24 - and Mourinho has rotated players in Premier League matches in recent weeks as he has plotted his way through the Europa League.

They are also out to avenge their 3-2 defeat by United in February's League Cup final, which left a bitter taste after Manolo Gabbiadini saw what would have been the opening goal ruled out for a dubious offside.

"I think it is fair Sergio is going to play the final and David accepts". "So receipt of sponsorship next year from Adidas would be £70m if we're in the Champions League, so that would be 30% of that, so £21m reduction".

Mourinho chose to rest Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Ander Herrera, Marcus Rashford and Matteo Darmian, which led to his decision to play Eric Bailly at right-back and teenager Axel Tuanzebe in midfield.

In a dig aimed at Liverpool and Manchester City, who are favoured to finish in the top four, he said that lifting silverware was paramount for big clubs.

"When I have 14, 15 players I can't do it".

Mourinho has appeared unimpressed by the number of games the England trio of Smalling, Luke Shaw and Phil Jones have missed this season, repeatedly querying if some of his players have the right mental attitude. So if we can win a third title, or as you like to say, a second title, if we can do that it would be magnificent for us. When people say 'we gambled, ' we didn't gamble, we didn't choose Europa League.

"When we can make seven changes with the team, this has allowed different players to recover, and this will allow us to finish strong this week".

The Times on Tuesday reveal how much United will pay out in bonuses if they win the Europa League.

"We were talking a lot and I think we believe when the new stadium opens the doors it will help the club achieve the last level", Pochettino added. There was nothing to regret, I am very happy with the performance of the players.
