Jose Mourinho Looks To Europa League Final After Tottenham Hotspur Defeat

Mourinho made the announcement following the 2-0 defeat away to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. There was nothing to regret, I am very happy with the performance of the players.

"What I want from the players is a good attitude, positive attitude, positive approach, team spirit, an understanding that some guys have to sacrifice themselves for the sake of others", he said.

"And one last match to play because in this moment the Premier League, for us, is just matches we don't want to play". For Manchester United it's more important to win titles than to finish top four. You know what we have been working on all season? We know that if we lose the final we won't play in the Champions League next season.

Though they will miss out on the top four, Jose Mourinho's side will want to put an end to their four-game winless league run. We know that, but we fight for titles.

"I told them exactly that", said Mourinho.

United won the League Cup earlier in the season and reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, while a host of injuries - like the one that ended top-scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic's season - has further reduced Mourinho's options.

'You can't play two big competitions with 15 players.

The Red Devils are in the final of the Europa League against Ajax, and that was reflected in Mourinho's team selection for the game.

Mourinho admitted in his post-match interview on Sky Sports that he wished his side didn't have to play any more Premier League matches this season due to their European commitments. Scotland are 25th in the Uefa rankings but the intricacy of the system means they move up one place, giving Aberdeen passage into the second round.

"I think after I trained and I played, and he could see how I behaved as a professional, he had a different opinion".

"The last month or so we have been disappointed and we are hurting from that", said Evans. "And I think it makes sense to say it".

Added to that, the powerful midfielder has represented his team on 34 occasions in the Premier League, where he has scored three goals and helped his team boast the best defensive record in the top tier.
