Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has insisted that he is not looking beyond his side's Europa League final at the end of this season. Until the injuries arrived, we fought for the Premier League top four.
"When people say we gambled by going to the Europa League [to secure Champions League qualification], we didn't gamble. We know that, but we fight for trophies and probably other clubs finishing in the top four would like to be in our position to try and fight for the trophy", he added.
The prize at stake that night will be a place in next season's Champions League which looks like being beyond the Red Devils through the traditional path of a Premier League top-four finish.
However, he will not go overboard and field a team of youngsters - as he wants to ensure his players are good enough to provide some competition.
"I never, ever have had a situation like this and on top of that the accumulation of big injuries, not small, not the injuries that you say "okay, hamstring, two weeks".
Shreeves attempted to ask Mourinho for one more question, asking him "Jose, before you go.", but Mourinho had already had enough and left the interview area, muttering about preparing for the Europa League final being his only thought. "I don't want to field a team where people think we aren't fighting for the result - we are fighting for the result".
Mourinho made eight changes to his side that reached the Europa League final with a 1-1 draw with Celta Vigo at Old Trafford.

"The accumulation of the games, I never had that", said Mourinho.
