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

"I think it's fair that Sergio is going to play the final and David accepts that, especially because he's already played Europa League matches and if we win the trophy, David wins the trophy".

David de Gea has accepted he will be on the bench when Manchester United take on Ajax in the Europa League final.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera believes they were forced to suffer in qualifying for this season's Europa League final.

"It's a positive result that leaves us with the advantage, but it's a small advantage", United coach Jose Mourinho said.

Defender Eric Bailly will miss the final through suspension following the straight red card he received for violent conduct towards the end of the 1-1 draw with Celta Vigo that saw United progress.

"We didn't chose Europa League, we had to do it because if I have Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Marcus Rojo..."

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.

"I am not upset because we had to make that decision", he said about missing out on the top four.

"They are two fantastic goalkeepers".

"You're speaking about the Argentina national goalkeeper and the Spain national goalkeeper".

"But we fight for titles and probably other clubs finishing in the top four, probably they would like to be in our position to try and fight for the title". I never saw a bad face, I always saw them supporting each other.

"We did things that nobody did in this club in the first season, like winning a trophy, like having the record of Manchester United in the Premier League, unbeatable, like reaching a European final".

Manchester United travel to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday knowing that it could be a surreal and emotional day for the opposition as they prepare to play their last ever match at the old White Hart Lane stadium.
