Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reacted to his side's victory over visiting FC Rostov in the Europa League round of 16 second leg tie where the Red Devils won 1-0 at Old Trafford on Thursday, March 16, 2017.
The victory sent Manchester United to the quarter-final of the competition but the former Chelsea boss explained that his side have lots of enemies.
Mourinho however did not mention names of the club's enemies, but he was furious his team had to play at Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Monday, March 13, 2017 then Rostov and must next visit Middlesbrough in the Premier League on Sunday, March 19, 2017.
“We have lots of enemies. Normally the enemies should be Rostov but we have a lot of enemies.
“It’s difficult to play Monday with 10 men (after Ander Herrera was sent off at Chelsea), it’s difficult to play now, it’s difficult to play 12 o’clock on Sunday.
“A lot of people might say we should have scored more goals (against Rostov). But a lot of things are going against us. The boys are amazing boys. We will probably lose the game on Sunday. Fatigue has a price.” Mourinho explained.
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho and his wards have already won the EPL Cup this season, and United have no or limited hope to win the Premier League title, but the Red Devils can fight for the Europa League trophy.
