Daley Blind eager to remain at Manchester United

Daley Blind eager to remain at Manchester United

With Wednesday's make-or-break Europa League final against Ajax looming large, Mourinho stuck to his word by resting numerous key players and handing four young prospects their full debut with sixth place already assured. We have the (Europa League) final and we have to make sure we win.

United must win the Europa League to qualify for next season's Champions League.

"We hope Ajax can continue to show good things in Europe and in the next years to prove reaching this final was no accident", Van der Sar added in Dutch newspaper interviews at the weekend.

"So I say to myself, if I want to play every game for Manchester United, which is my dream, I have to do something else for the club and for the manager".

"It is probably the biggest compliment of this year's run to the final that Europe is again talking about Ajax", said club marketing director Edwin van der Sar, who kept goal for both Manchester United and Ajax.

Mourinho offloaded Mata to United when he was Chelsea boss, meaning it was inevitable that speculation of a possible repeat scenario would arise when the Portuguese arrived at Old Trafford.

And he was brought off in the 88th minute - receiving a massive ovation on what could be his last appearance for the club - to be replaced by 16-year-old Angel Gomes who became United's youngest player for 61 years.

With this in mind, Mourinho needs to pick a confident attacking line up that will remind United's opponents of exactly what they are up against and set the tone for how they plan to approach the game.

"I would prefer to give them debuts like I gave to Axel against Reading, to Joel against Wigan - or a big match, but for one player".

Paul Pogba secured the win but the afternoon belonged to the young forward, and he stated his delight at opening his senior account for the Red Devils. We understand football the same way and we think the same way.

Ander Herrera has thanked Gary Neville and credited the former Manchester United star for inspiring the Spain star to turn himself into a mainstay of Jose Mourinho's side.

Jones has suffered another injury-troubled season, starting only 24 of United's 63 games in all competitions, but Mourinho has generally been impressed with the his commitment levels.
