Mourinho: We Don't Want League Games


But those determined to see Mourinho align with the club's values should admire the Portuguese's determination to deliver an actual trophy, rather than a top four trophy, to Old Trafford.

McAteer has no doubt that Mourinho made the Europa League his priority some time ago after deciding it would be hard for his side to climb into the top four in the Premier League, where they were Liverpool's rivals for a Champions League spot. But we must remember that we have a few exciting days ahead, and I hope that, at the end of the season, we can say that, overall, it's been a good season for us. "When people say we gamble, we didn't gamble, we didn't choose the Europa League - we had to do it". We had to do it.

"I don't want my players to feel the Europa League is our competition". It's as simple as that. "And one last match to play, because in this moment the Premier League is just matches we don't want to play". So it was not a choice.

"We were pushed for that situation and even the (fixtures) draw".

When I analyse, I don't think that way.

"Yes they were today, and against Man City, Swansea and Arsenal, and it'll be the same in the next match against Southampton and the last match against Crystal Palace". I can go for every match. I can not lose 5-0 or 6-0. We know that, but we fight for titles.

Mourinho said that he is "fine" with the performances of his players in what was the last ever game at White Hart Lane having once again made a host of changes to his starting XI.

"Other clubs fighting for the top four would like to be in our position".

The 27-year-old has played key role for Mourinho this season and the fact that he has been left out of Wednesday's game points to a potential final start in Stockholm. Players were in different positions, there was no concentration and no focus.

"The two goals conceded were bad".

Aberdeen have been handed a European boost thanks to the domestic failings of Ajax and Manchester United.

"To be honest it's another game against Tottenham". Disappointment on our final visit to White Hart Lane. "We really want to".

Tottenham Hotspur will play for pride as they can not challenge Chelsea for the title any more in this season.

Harry Kane doubled that on 48 minutes, before Wayne Rooney scored a consolation goal for United.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino said after they move to their new £800m stadium - following a temporary move to Wembley - the north Londoners can join the elite in Europe.
