Pogba was also absent for Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, and Mourinho insisted that they will not rush the France global back following the personal tragedy.

The Portuguese boss looks set to miss out on a Champions League spot based on their position in the table, but can still qualify for Europe's premier club competition next season if they win the Europa League this month.

"I have to build some teams with the minimum of conditions to fight for the result", Mourinho added.

Jose Mourinho claims that "other clubs finishing in the top four" would like to trade places with Manchester United as they battle for Europa League glory.

'When people say we gambled by going to Europa League, we didn't gamble, ' he continued. "We know it's a big objective, we know that if we lose the final we don't play Champions League, we know that", he said. "There are two games to play and we want to finish on a good feeling". There were no injuries and it's one less match to play because at this moment the Premier League matches for us are matches we don't want to play.

The Red Devils are without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, who have been ruled out for the rest of the campaign and therefore the manager is unlikely to risk many of his top stars in the final two games against Southampton and Crystal Palace.

The Europa League final in Sweden follows three days later.

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

Mourinho rested key players again yesterday, just as he did when United lost 2-0 at Arsenal last Sunday.

The 27-year-old has played key role for Mourinho this season and the fact that he has been left out of Wednesday's game points to a potential final start in Stockholm. I can not go to Man City or to Arsenal and put five kids at the same time all together.

The post Mourinho: We Don't Want League Games appeared first on 360Nobs.com. For Manchester United it's more important to win titles than to finish top four. I can not lose 5-0 or 6-0.

"The ones that needed to play 90 mins got to play, we got no injuries". "The two goals are two very bad goals conceded but the team is not used to playing together".
