'Nonsense' - Sutton hits out at manager comments after Tottenham beat Man United

'Nonsense' - Sutton hits out at manager comments after Tottenham beat Man United

United now need to beat Ajax in Stockholm to secure Champions League football for 2017-18, but Mourinho has stressed he did not gamble by throwing in the towel domestically.

Ahead of the Europa League final between the two sides on May 24, Bosz has claimed only with an attacking philosophy like that of Ajax's can any club win the Europa League.

Speaking after United's 2-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Sunday, which ended their top four hopes, Mourinho identified to the possibility of an continental title as a point of envy.

"I do not want to think about next season - I want to think about the final we have to play in".

"We know it's a big objective, we know that if we lose the final we don't play Champions League, we know that".

"We know that, but we fight for titles".

Mourinho says he has no regrets about Man United's failure to finish in the Premier League top four, insisting trophies are more important.

But they have two more league games before that, with tomorrow's long trip to Southampton followed by a home game against Crystal Palace on Sunday. "When people say "we gambled", we didn't gamble", he said.

Why North Korea's latest missile test is a huge step forward
The test was not only successful, but witnesses say that this rocket flew higher than any missile tested before it. Council diplomats say the USA and China, the North's closest ally, have been working on a new sanctions resolution.

Mourinho shrugged off any disappointment surrounding a probable sixth-place finish for his EFL Cup winners - United have not finished lower since David Moyes' shambolic tenure in the 2013-14 season.

"But like this I never had this situation of you play a final and the game that you should play that day is going to be postponed for the last week, the last week!"

Mourinho admitted in his post-match interview on Sky Sports that he wished his side didn't have to play any more Premier League matches this season due to their European commitments. "If you were fighting for the title, what a way to fight for the title", Mourinho said. I can not go to Man City or to Arsenal and put five kids at the same time all together.

None of the last six encounters between these dudes have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them cancelling each other out in this one. "So it's difficult, difficult, but we know what we are doing".

Mata added: "I think it's fair to congratulate Chelsea for winning the Premier League".

After the match, Mourinho stated that he was "happy" with his team's performance considering what they had in terms of individual players.

"And another team (United) trying to find some balance even with players, some of them not playing in their best positions". Harry Kane doubled that on 48 minutes, before Wayne Rooney scored a consolation goal for United.
