José Mourinho hits out at Premier League as Manchester United draw Anderlecht

He's the manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs on the planet, the squad he's got, the players.

Considered as the favourite to win the Europe second tier competition, United booked their place in the quarter-final after a 2-1 aggregate win over Russian club FC Rostov and Jose Mourinho will be relieved that his side will not have make another long journey.

However, fellow strikers Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney are both injured as United try to take another step towards winning the Europa League and qualify for next season's Champions League.

"In every game Paris Saint-Germain have a lot of ball possession and move the ball fast so of course when we have the ball we have to find a way to score a goal", noted Depay.

United haven't performed too poorly against their top four rivals, but draws against teams such as Stoke City, AFC Bournemouth and Hull City have left them outside where they want to be.

Mourinho's team is now scheduled to play West Bromwich Albion (April 1), Everton (April 4), Sunderland (April 9), Anderlecht (April 13), Chelsea (April 16), Anderlecht again (April 20), Burnley (April 23) and Swansea City (April 30).

"I don't understand how we don't have any help in relation to European football".

"We should be the last team to play at the weekend. Why us? So it's going to be even more hard for us". Nobody can give me an explanation of why we are playing this Sunday at 12 o'clock.

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

The Europa League Round of 16 second leg at Old Trafford comes only 72 hours after United put in a courageous and tireless shift in the narrow Emirates FA Cup defeat to Chelsea. The snack was thoughtfully peeled for him by Mourinho and handed to Ashley Young, then conveyed to the defender.

"We should play Monday or the last match on Sunday. I think I was just not good enough for him but it's ok, I'll show my quality here now and I will get back to my top level and we will see how things turn out". "But I think you can do that and have a little finger, a little touch".

Mata believes Ibrahimovic's assist was an attempt on goal, but the victory sent United's into Friday's Europa League quarter-final draw in Switzerland. "Even a physical monster like him felt it".
