Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho more focused on silverware than top four

19 Mai, 2017, 22:12 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

United fell to a 2-1 defeat against Tottenham in the final game at White Hart Lane on Sunday, from which you can read 16 Conclusions. They should be competing for trophies.

"I have to build some teams with the minimum of conditions to fight for the result", Mourinho added.

Jose Mourinho believes Manchester United's Premier League rivals would rather be in the Europa League final than scrapping over a top-four finish.

"When people say we gamble, we didn't gamble, we didn't choose the Europa League - we had to do it".

When referring to the Europa League, Mourinho also stated that his team can not play "two big competitions" with "15 players".

"I am fine with what we had in terms of individual performances", he said. They played 90 minutes the ones that need to play and I rested a few people.

"We are going to do this in this last week, these last three matches we are going to try not to accumulate too many minutes with any one of the players".

United will play Southampton on Wednesday before ending their domestic campaign with a home contest against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Mourinho also revealed that he is trying to give a day off to as many of his players as possible in order to get them in the best shape for the Europa League final against Ajax later this month. Blind will not play against Southampton but Fellaini will, because he has not played the last three matches. I can rotate; I can go for every match.

"We look forward to a strong finish to 2016-17, both on and off the pitch", said Executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward. I can not lose 5-0 or 6-0.

"Other clubs fighting for the top four would like to be in our position". "The two goals are two very bad goals to concede, there was no concentration and no focus, but the team is not used to playing together and playing in different positions".

Goals from Victory Wanyama and Harry Kane dealt a second straight Premier League defeat to Mourinho's side, despite Wayne Rooney's second-half consolation in the final match at White Hart Lane.

"After 2-0 we had to bring a bit more quality to the team, we brought more balance", Mourinho said in his post-match press conference.
