Titles more important than top four to Manchester United, says Mourinho

Man Utd to face Ajax in Europa League final

In March, Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli had the length of his suspension increased to three European club matches for his reckless tackle on Gent's Brecht Dejaegere in the Europa League.

Despite highlighting several flaws with Mourinho's first season at Old Trafford, Hardy felt the campaign would be a success if Mourinho secured the second piece of silverware of his tenure.

"I am not upset because we had to make that decision", he explained.

"I think United will win the Europa League, Mourinho has the track record to pull himself through", he told the Sunday Supplement.

'This year we won 2-1 at the Bernabeu against Real Madrid and they are almost in the Champions League final so we know we can do it.

For Jose Mourinho's men though, they won't be thinking too much about sentimentality, hoping that they can put together a performance that gives them three points which keeps them in with an outside chance of reaching the top four in the English Premier League. I never saw in all my career two goalkeepers to be so friendly, because it is a position where you always have a little bit of rivalry, especially if you are both the same kind of level.

United can not finish below sixth this season, no matter what happens in their remaining three fixtures.




Asked what his approach to selection would be, he said: "The same".

"So it's hard but we know what we are doing and I don't know other clubs, I don't know the way they think, I don't know what is important for them".

"But I have to play them mixed". I don't think we can finish seventh or we can finish fourth, so fifth or sixth.

"But, if it comes off, he will end the season with two trophies and qualify for the Champions League with a team that was going nowhere before he arrived".

"But obviously, like we did against Arsenal, we didn't throw the match away".

"We gave a hard match to our opponent".

"We, Manchester United, for us it is more important to win titles than to finish top four".
