Europa final would be 'perfect' end to season, says Mourinho

21 April, 2017, 19:47 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

Mourinho said both players would be able to come back sooner than anticipated if they put their minds to it. The same way I know the players much better now, the players should know me much better.

"So when you reach a certain level and you've reached it for a long time, I don't think it makes sense".

Rashford also scored in United's 2-0 victory over league leaders Chelsea last weekend.

"It's time for Jones and Smalling to be fearless, to risk", Mourinho said.

The 37-year-old midfielder told La Capitale: "I was surprised by the poor quality of Manchester United".

United boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Argentina keeper Sergio Romero will start ahead of David de Gea.

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera either side of half-time not only helped United's top four case, while also denting the Blues' title bid.

Wayne Rooney is another attacking option after returning to the bench against Anderlecht following ankle issues, with Mourinho backing his captain to have a big influence in the closing weeks of the campaign. They are injured and they can not make Sunday.

Rooney has not played since United's 0-0 draw at home to West Bromwich Albion on April 1 and had become a peripheral figure even before then, but Mourinho indicated he could now play an important role. We equalised, but couldn't score a second goal.

"Some players don't know what makes me trust a player but Marcus I trust". With a top four spot via the Premier League looking hard, Jose Mourinho will want to make sure his team are in Europe's elite competition by going on to win the Europa League.

"Because for the team they have to do everything, that's the way I think, we can not do miracles, so miracles I do not expect but we have to try to do everything to accelerate the process". "For Zlatan it would be fantastic to play the final in Stockholm, in his country".

The Europa League was the competition in which Rashford made his senior breakthrough last season, scoring twice on debut against FC Midtjylland as an 18-year-old unknown.
