Jose Mourinho argues losing to Chelsea turned Man United's season

Jose Mourinho argues losing to Chelsea turned Man United's season

A nervy performance against Celta Vigo at Old Trafford saw United progress to the final, where they will play Dutch side, Ajax.

"There were no injuries and one less match to play", Mourinho concluded. "Because in this moment the Premier League for us is just matches we didn't want to play".

Manchester United go into the game aiming to finish their Premier League campaign on a high. You know what we have been working on all season?

After the Chicago Fire resoundingly defeated the current Major League Soccer defending champion Seattle Sounders, the German icon was asked if he's been following United's progression through to the Europa League final in Stockholm on May 24th. "But we fight for titles and probably other clubs finishing in the top four, probably they would like to be in our position, to try to fight for a title". We know that, but we fight for titles. Mourinho's men made a hard work out of what it looked like to be a walk in the park.

With Europa League commitments in mind, Mourinho has made it clear he will rotate his playing squad for Wednesday's game against Southampton - and the final day clash against Crystal Palace.

"I hope for Southampton that we will see this for next season but of course it will be interesting to continue this work because I think it's important to improve". You can't play two big competitions with 15 players.




Ahead of the Europa League final between the two sides on May 24, Bosz has claimed only with an attacking philosophy like that of Ajax's can any club win the Europa League.

"With two matches in hand that we had to play later, it is impossible". They won the Champions League on three occasions.

"Players were in different positions", Mourinho concluded. "There was no concentration and no focus".

The defeat against Tottenham means United are now likely to finish sixth.

"These are examples of trying not to accumulate but people have to play, we don't have other players".

"I think he has been pleased with us and we've never had feedback from him where he has felt we have slacked off".
