Jose Mourinho Urges Anthony Martial to 'Give Me Things I Like'

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes advancing to the Europa League final would be the flawless conclusion to the club's hard season. We have Daley Blind, who has experience in the position, and I think it is time for Jones and Smalling to be courageous - to risk.

After four changes from the first leg for last Sunday's memorable win over Premier League leaders Chelsea, the boss has made five alterations for the second meeting with the Belgian side.

"It will be the ideal end to the season", Mourinho told the press, according to the Daily Mail.

What a ball this was from Paul Pogba in the build up to Mkhitaryan's goal...

Twice asked if Mkhitaryan was fulfilling his full potential, on both occasions Mourinho said: "In the Europa League, yes". That's why United have never won the Europa League, and why I won it in the only year I played in the competition, back in 2002/03.

JOSE MOURINHO has warned Anthony Martial he must do things his way to have a chance of succeeding at Manchester United. "Yes I think. But he needs to give me things that I like".

Speaking before today's Europa League quarter-final, second-leg against Anderlecht at Old Trafford, Mourinho was asked his thoughts on the France global and whether leaving him on the bench indicated he was not fully satisfied with him.

But the greatest example has come from the youngest of players in Marcus Rashford - particularly more in the last two games. "You can not do miracles, so miracles I don't expect, but they have to try to do everything to accelerate the process".

Manchester United's bid to secure Champions League qualification via the league was given a massive boost following their recent win against Chelsea, but as we've frequently seen this season, Mourinho's men have struggled to put together a run of consistent wins together.

Few could have foreseen such an arduous evening after Mkhitaryan's fifth goal in six Europa League matches, but impressive Anderlecht went into half-time level after Hanni reacted quickest to Youri Tielemans' deflected effort rebounding off the crossbar.

"We lost players in the January market, we didn't bring in anyone, we lost players in global week, so we need everyone that can and Wayne can". Sergio is very experienced and playing very well.
