Europa League run brightens Manchester United's financial outlook

Hilda Schwartz | 17 May, 2017, 02:10

Defeat to Tottenham on Sunday ruled out the prospect of United finishing in the top four domestically, with Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal contesting the final two spots as the season enters its final week.

The United boss has always stated that his focus was on winning the Europa League, as a route into the Champions League.

But, midfielder Harrop added two more goals late into the second half to help his team finish the Premier League 2 campaign with a win.

"So if we can win a third title (after the Community Shield and EFL Cup) it would be magnificent for us".

"I don't think so".

One of Mourinho's major selection choices is to decide who starts the Europa League final in goal, and it appears the Portuguese has opted for Sergio Romero. Nobody can play two big competitions with 15 players, and that's what we had.

So it looks like we should expect some "interesting" sides from United against Southampton and Crystal Palace as Mourinho looks to get his squad in tip-top shape to face Ajax.

"We had to do it because, if I have Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Ibrahimovic, Tim Fosu-Mensah, if I have these guys (who are injured), I can rotate, I can go for every match". We have pushed as much as we can and I am glad to be back.

"I can not understand the speculation because when I see all of the fans on the street they are happy to see me, and tell me congratulations". Mourinho, meanwhile, revealed that he has a good idea of the starting XI for the Europa League final, but admitted that he could change his mind based on individual performances until the end of the season. [Daley] Blind will not play against Southampton, [Marouane] Fellaini will because he's not played the last three [league] matches [due to suspension].

United captain Rooney agreed with Mourinho in that Tottenham had more motivation going into the game. Pogba missed the game at Tottenham Hotspur due to the death of his father, making his involvement at Southampton doubtful. "It was special for their players and fans but for us it was another game at White Hart Lane", he said.

And it is not only the former UEFA Cup trophy that is on the line for the Premier League side. "The facilities on the training ground and the stadium will put the team and the club at the last level".
