Jose Mourinho walks out of post-match interview

Man United qualified for the Europa League final after securing a draw with Celta Vigo on May 11. Because we work very hard.

United's priority is clearly the Europa League final and Mourinho will field a weakened team so I fancy Tottenham to edge it.

"It was so difficult, so hard for me this season, so if we manage to do that it will be unbelievable".

Blackburn Rovers achieved a similar upset way back in 1994/95, while Sir Alex Ferguson boasts a record 13 titles in charge of Manchester United but the Red Devils are yet to win the league since 2012/13.

Marouane Fellaini serves the final game of his three-match ban while Luke Shaw, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are out for the season.

"The majority of the players that needed to rest had the rest and we played in a positive way, especially in the second half when we brought to the team quality and a little bit more organisation".

"The final means an opportunity to win a trophy, to be back in the Champions League, and to end the season in the ideal way because it is the last match of the season".

United have not shot up the league under Mourinho but the performances have boosted fans worn down by his predecessor Louis van Gaal's prosaic style and starved of the success they had grown used to under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Sunday's 2-1 defeat at Tottenham ensured that United will again finish outside of the Premier League's top four this season, leaving the clash with Ajax in Stockholm on May 24 as their only avenue into the Champions League for 2017-18. I think it's fair that Sergio plays the final and David accepts that.

United can not finish below sixth this season, no matter what happens in their remaining three fixtures. I never saw a bad face, I only saw them support each other. All the team deserve to be in the final as we give everything in every game.

"We're going to see if we really can write history, because when you are in the final, the only thing you want when you get there is to win!"

"Clearly the Champions League has greater revenues, but we have designed an offset within salary costs and our bonus structure which attempts to damage the impact between being in the Champions League and being in the Europa League", he explained.
