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

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

"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.

"They've been the most consistent team in the league and thanks to that they were able to celebrate the title last Friday after defeating West Brom, so my honest congrats to them".

Claude Puel admits he finds speculation over his job as Southampton manager "strange" ahead of their Premier League clash against Manchester United on Wednesday. I never, ever have had a situation like this and on top of that the accumulation of big injuries, not small, not the injuries that you say "ok, hamstring, two weeks".

English Premier League footballclub Manchester United raised its full-year revenue and profit forecast for 2016-2017 as it prepares for the Europa League final next week.

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. I think Mourinho always fancies himself in a one-game shoot-out.

This adds huge significance to the Europa League final against Ajax later this month. You can't play two big competitions with 15 players.

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

One of his standout performances this term came against Premier League champions, Chelsea in January.

On Sunday, United still fielded a team that included the likes of Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Michael Carrick.

"Of course I have in my mind already what I think is going to be the team and the players who can influence the decisions with positive or negative decisions".

A place in next season's Champions League will also be on the line - something that was considered a minimum requirement when Mourinho took over from Louis van Gaal in the summer.

"Tottenham played well but we could have done better".
