Manchester United welcome Celta Vigo to Old Trafford in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final on Thursday evening, and are big favourites to come out on top to book their place in the final against either Ajax or Olympique Lyonnais.
He effectively gave up the challenge of earning Champions League qualification through United's Premier League placing when he decided not to field his strongest team at Arsenal on Sunday and paid the price with an insipid 2-0 defeat.
"The situation is simple; 17 matches in seven weeks with 16 players is impossible". It was not a gamble, it was a simple decision based on common sense. Seventeen matches with 16 players is completely impossible.
"After that we lost boys that could be alternatives: Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Timothy Fosu-Mensah". When we lost these players in a period of 17 matches in seven weeks, it was the impossible job.
"It was not a gamble, just a outcome of our situation". I don't think Celta want it more than us.

Mourinho's caution earned him criticism from those United followers who believed he should have been more ambitious and gone all out for the victory at The Emirates which could have still given the team hope on two fronts. "I don't think it's consistent, the atmosphere, the enthusiasm", he said. 'Against Chelsea they wanted to play from the first minute to the last.
"The only game more important than the second leg of a semi-final is the final, so we have to fight hard (on Thursday)".
