Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney: Of course I want to stay here

Before Celta Vigo's visit to Old Trafford for the semi-final second leg on Thursday, Mourinho said his decision to rest key players in the league was a result of those circumstances.

"The kid was brilliant", said Mourinho, who asked him to play at right-back instead of his normal position in the centre of defence.

"It was a decision based on common sense".

"Seventeen matches in seven weeks, April and May, with 16 players is completely impossible". We lost because we didn't score and we had great chances to score before them.

It was important because we lost at Tottenham - that didn't happen many times.

"It was not a gamble, just a effect of our situation". We have no regrets'.

The 2017 Europa League final will be played at the Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.

Still, the club has spent something approaching $600 million on new players over the last three offseasons — $375 million across two summers under Van Gaal and close to $200 million under Mourinho — and has a deep squad. "We want to have a successful season and this is a crucial moment of the season".

India's cricket team to participate in Champions Trophy
With the new revenue model getting the nod, BCCI will now have to do with what they have in the eight-year cycle. India has been at loggerheads with the ICC in recent weeks over the revenue and governance models.

"I'm not really a fan of talking about myself too much, maybe others should judge (how my first season has gone)".

'We are going to prove tomorrow what we've been for the whole season which is to fight hard in match No 14 in the Europa League in order to reach the final'.

United would obviously rather their tilt at continental glory came in the Champions League than the Europa League, but this competition offers silverware and a return to the top table.

After that, United are expected to be missing Luke Shaw and will be without Marcos Rojo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ashley Young, and Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

The £35million signing from Borussia Monchengladbach has been dismissed nine times in the last three years in all but scored his side's opener in the 2-0 win over United.

The 54-year-old has reiterated his stance on the mood at home games. "I don't think it's consistent, the atmosphere and enthusiasm. Against Anderlecht it was not warm enough".

While United have struggled in the Premier League this term, the Portuguese could end his first season in the hotseat with a third trophy.

Speaking in September, José Mourinho claimed that the tournament "is not a competition that Man United want... it is not one I want or the players but it is a competition where we are and that is the reality".
