Mourinho done with EPL games after latest defeat

The result means Manchester United can not finish in the top four this season and must win the Europa League final against Ajax to qualify for next season's Champions League.

With Manchester United's active involvement in next season's Champions League exclusively dependent on the outcome in Sweden, Jose's decision will generate questions as for De Gea's long-term future at Old Trafford.

In the USA, the match will be available to watch live on television on FS1 and by stream via Fox Soccer 2Go.

United insiders, however, have indicated the club are first waiting to establish if Jose Mourinho's side will be playing Champions League football next season. And he suggested that Spurs, City and Liverpool, despite their league positions, would rather be competing in finals like United were.

Mourinho says he has no regrets about Man United's failure to finish in the Premier League top four, insisting trophies are more important. Moreover, United were besieged with injury troubles and Mourinho made it clear that it was impossible to fight on two fronts with just 15 players.

Manchester United have entered the UEFA Europa League Final after beating Celta Vigo 2-1 in the semi-final.

"We gave a hard match to our opponent".

The Red Devils were dealt a blow in their pursuit of a top four position after dropping points against Swansea in a match that many expected Jose Mourinho's side to comfortably win.

"We won a League Cup".

He added: "Of course, when a player is at a fantastic club like Manchester United they know there is a lot of competition because there are a lot of good players".

"Even the draw [for the fixtures], if it is a draw, I never understood well if it is a draw", Mourinho said.

But captain Steven Davis believes an eighth-place finish will still represent an acceptable season.

"It means an opportunity to win a trophy, to get back to the Champions League and to end the season in a flawless way because the final is the last match of the season".

"In my personal analysis, I don't think that way". The players that needed to play 90 minutes did it, that was important for them. "Everybody knows the importance of the games, and we will be ready as a team". We had our chances to get a different result and that's what we are going to do.
