Mourinho: Man United Don't Want To Play EPL Games

The United manager has promised to tinker with his squad with next week's Europa League final in mind.

"We tried to come back into the game and we had a big chance [to make it] 2-2 with Rashford, but we couldn't take it which was a pity because we really wanted to get a result here". When people say 'we gambled, ' we didn't gamble, we didn't choose Europa League.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Tim Fosu-Mensah miss both of United's remaining Premier League matches through injury, while Mourinho is expecting to be without Paul Pogba at Southampton after the midfielder's father died on Friday.

"You know that in all of my career I was never (knocked) out of European competitions in the group phases and in the last 16 I was out only once". It's as simple as that.

Jose Mourinho has insisted winning the Europa League is a much greater achievement than finishing in the top four, four years after insisting he did not "want my players to feel the Europa League is our competition". If we had met in a different situation... I can not go to Man City or to Arsenal and put five kids at the same time all together. I can not lose 5-0 or 6-0.

Mourinho and United already have one cup and could have a second with the Europa League their only real route to the UCL, so I think it is down to us. We know that if we lose the final we won't play in the Champions League next season.

Si Woo Kim youngest Players Championship winner, Ian Poulter second at Sawgrass
Ian Poulter has confirmed that he has accepted an invite to compete in next week's BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. He ended the tournament tied for second and picked up nearly $1 million in prize money.

And Mourinho has revealed he made the decision to focus upon doing well in the Europa League, as focusing upon both that and Premier League football was "not possible".

"Two bad goals conceded but a positive game for us because the players that needed to play 90 minutes, they did it, and it's important for them", Mourinho said.

And Mourinho, speaking after defeat at White Hart Lane, noted that claiming a trophy would eclipse finishing in the top four.

Southampton, who won 2-1 at relegated Middlesbrough on Sunday, are in a straight shootout for eighth place with West Bromwich Albion, who now lead them on goal difference.

"I want to give the players the best conditions to try to go to the final". "Claude Puel is under a bit of pressure", Merson said.
