Two monsters play the Europa League final: Jose Mourinho

Asked if failing to win the Europa League would make the season a failure, he replied: "I think, by you media, you have the right to say it and I think it makes sense".

United gave themselves a two-goal aggregate cushion in the 17th minute of the match when Fellaini headed home Marcus Rashford's cross for the club's 100th goal of the season, goal.com reported.

JOSE MOURINHO has confirmed Sergio Romero will start in goal for Manchester United in their Europa League final against Ajax.

One more goal for Celta Vigo and they would have gone through on the away goals rule, and that tension showed when Manchester United and Celta players got into a bit of a tussle, with Eric Bailly and the goalscorer Roncaglia seeing red.

"It's an opportunity to be back into the Champions League".


"I want my team to play the way I live life".

Liverpool were given 10,236 tickets for last season's Europa League against Sevilla at Basle's 35,000-capacity St Jakob-Park.

Mourinho also pointed out that his side have cultivated a run of 25 unbeaten Premier League games this season, although they have also registered 14 draws, which is a record high for the League.

"Ajax's league finishes Sunday", said Mourinho. "Some kept control better than others", he said.

Not for the first time this season, Mourinho was left to praise the battling qualities of his players, who will play Ajax in the final in Stockholm on May 24 after the Dutch club ousted Lyon 5-4 on aggregate despite losing the second leg 3-1.


"We have three Premier League matches to play, hopefully Crystal Palace doesn't need the last game". "It was very important for us to reach this final and it's always good if there is a possibility to win a trophy".

"I think it is fair that Sergio is going to play in the final and David accepts (that)".

Meanwhile, United were charged by UEFA for kicking off late against Celta Vigo.

"Celta were completely free of responsibility and gave us a very hard match". You can look at them and say a team were winners but they do not tell you how well, or how badly, they played to do it.

Celta, whose fans made most of the noise, were lively from the start but United went ahead when Fellaini got in front of his marker to head in at the far post after Marcus Rashford drifted out to the left and delivered a ideal cross.
