Aberdeen handed Europa League bye

Speaking to Sky Sports after the 1-2 loss to Tottenham on Sunday, the United manager said: "What we did was compulsory".

"I'm fine with what we had in terms of individual performances, the two goals were bad goals that we conceded, but the team was not used to each other".

"But we fight for titles and other clubs in the top four, probably they would like to be in our position".

The defeat ends all hope of Manchester United qualifying for the Champions League through the Premier League with Mourinho making eight changes for the trip to London. "But if I was on your side and you are always looking for these kinds of capital letters, big headlines, I accept if you say that".

"We have only one match to play and that's not in the Premier League".

"The accumulation of the games, I never had that", said Mourinho.

United visit Southampton on Wednesday before entertaining Crystal Palace on the season's final day and while there is nothing riding on the games, Mata says he and his team-mates can not afford to take them lightly.

"If I have Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, Timothy Fosu-Mensa - if I have them I can rotate".

Mourinho did imply that Anthony Martial would make an appearance, while Daley Blind will be rested ahead of the Europa League final against former club Ajax. "I don't know when we would be playing that game". Moreover, United were besieged with injury troubles and Mourinho made it clear that it was impossible to fight on two fronts with just 15 players.

According to The Times, the mandatory wage cut applies to the 22 first-team players who finished last season under Louis van Gaal and amounts to £28m in total. 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.

"Only now say to our fans we will try next season to give our best and fight again to win the league". "I think he deserves another chance".

Mourinho wants to win both league matches but is not getting strung up on the outcome, given victory against Ajax is the overriding goal.
