Europa League: Manchester United to play Anderlecht in quarter final [Full draw]

Pogba criticism fuelled by envy says José Mourinho Europa League: Manchester United to play Anderlecht in quarter final [Full draw]

Manchester United will be confident of booking their place in the Europa League quarter-final draw when they take to the pitch for their last-16 second-leg against Rostov on Thursday.

Manager Jose Mourinho admitted on Thursday night he could be out for an extended period: 'I don't know for sure, but for sure, no Middlesbrough and no national team'.

"We should be the last team to play in the weekend - it is as simple as that".

We just had a look at some of the cup draws they've had, and they've had an easy ride in the cup.

"Our people can give us that extra support and the players deserve that last push, so I want to say the boys will be ready".

Man United's next match is away at managerless Middlesbrough on Sunday, a game which Mourinho has claimed that his side will "probably lose". I don't ask for me, but for all the English teams.

"But we are going to try and the next step is obviously to try to be in the quarter-final draw". Every country, they try to give support to teams in European football, but here it's hard.

He also accused the Premier League of not caring about English clubs competing in Europe.

Although United manager Jose Mourinho has not rated the competition highly in the past, Mata believes it could be an important piece of silverware for them this year.

"I think in England it's also a little bit of the same". We play to score goals, we play good football, building up from the back.

"But Mourinho has launched a passionate defence of Pogba, still only 24, and insists his strong personality means that he "does not give a 's" about his critics.

"I have good games and bad games like everyone but in terms of how many games I have played and how many goals I've scored or assisted I'm happy about it".

"This is a very hard draw", he said. The snack was thoughtfully peeled for him by Mourinho and handed to Ashley Young, then conveyed to the defender. In the second half immediately he felt he couldn't carry on, so even a physical monster like him felt it. Paul is paying the price.

"But of course, he was one of the players who never had a rest because he's played every game".

"I could've gone to China and put my feet up, but I need a challenge that will motivate me".

"Next year? The situation is I've signed here for a year with an option for another year".
