Jose Mourinho: Europa League final would be perfect for Man Utd


The Red Devils are preparing to take on Anderlecht in the second leg of their quarter-final tie at Old Trafford on Thursday night, after drawing the away leg 1-1.

With Mourinho's side struggling to break into the Premier League's top four this campaign, the Europa League presents a great opportunity. Winning the competition would give United an automatic Champions League spot for next season.

"A difficult season, lots of matches, trying to build a team, trying to recover a certain mentality, trying to finish the season playing a European final.

"It will be the perfect finale for Manchester United."

He added: "For Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] it would be fantastic to play the final in Stockholm, in his country. It would be beautiful."
