Manchester United staff will not attend Europa League final

On Eric Bailly's red card in Thursday's Europa League semi-final second leg game against Celta Vigo, Mourinho said: "I don't know about it".

Manchester United are through to the UEFA Europa League Final, having just eliminated Spanish side Celta Vigo today.

Marouane Fellaini earned Man United a 1-0 lead on 17 minutes with a header, while that was erased by Facundo Roncaglia's shot at target with five minutes to go.

United will qualify for the Champions League if they beat Ajax and Mourinho added: "After 14 matches we are in the final".

But Celta continued to probe in the second half, with former Manchester City striker John Guidetti missing a number of chances to draw his side level.

Now the English club will face Ajax in the Stockholm final on May 24. "Of course I want to play football".

The aggregate victory took the Red Devils a step closer to their first Europa League triumph and a return to the Champions League.

The referee has also had a run-in with United manager Jose Mourinho before when the manager criticised him for failing to award Chelsea a penalty in their Champions League clash with Dynamo Kiev in October 2015.

"Because we never score goals related to the chances we have and then we got an open game at home with all the pressure in our side", he said.

Manchester United will play a changed team for all three of their final Premier League fixtures, Jose Mourinho has warned. Some kept in control in better ways than others did.

"We have three Premier League matches to play, hopefully Crystal Palace doesn't need the last game". With all the effort we put in, it was a great shame not to reach the final.

"They were completely free of responsibility and gave us a very hard match".

The United manager has made no secret of his despair at United's injury problems this season, with the likes of Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones coming in for criticism from the Portuguese, amid a hectic domestic and European schedule. We are not going say matches are not important - they are important.
