Europa finals will be perfect finale for Manchester United: Mourinho

Jose

Manchester United had quite an underperformed season as per their standards. It has been difficult for them to win games. They have played plenty of draws this season, which has affected them in a bad way. Although, they have played good football, their inconsistency to win matches has landed them into a tough position to be in the top 4 in the Premier League table. Compared to the previous season under Van Gaal, they have improved and have played aggressive football. They were criticized a lot last year, for not playing an attacking football. The Portuguese manager, Jose Mourinho, has taken care of the fact that they don’t play dull football.

Current season

Currently, the red devils are struggling to be in the top 4 spots in the Premier League. They currently stand at 5th place with 60 points. They are just behind their city rivals Manchester City by 4 points and a game in hand.

Manchester United can only win all their matches and hope that City drops their points somewhere. Only the top 4 teams in the league play the elite European competition Champions league or the team which wins the UEFA Europa League goes to play Champions league. Mourinho did show a tactical master piece in the last match against Chelsea and beating the league leaders 2-0. Speaking in an interview Mourinho said, “It will be a perfect end to the season” on the question of reaching the finals of Europa. He also mentioned, “It will be the perfect finale for Manchester United”. He further added that it would be a good way for the Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to end his season, who hails from Sweden. The final of the Europa League is to be played in the native country of Zlatan. “For Zlatan, it would be fantastic to play the final in Stockholm, in his country. It would be beautiful.” Mourinho added.

The Swedish striker is set to be honored with a statue at his home ground Friends Arena where the final will be played. The 35 years old striker has proved his critics wrong by performing exceedingly well for the red devils. Before the start of the season, he was questioned for not being quick enough for the Premier League. Currently, he has scored 17 goals for Manchester United in the premier League and has been one their best players. He is placed 6th in the list of Premier League top-scorers with some blistering finishes.

It would be interesting to see the fight for the 4th spot. Both the teams will try and win all the matches, given their solid squads. The team which loses the points will be the team, not making it to the Champions League. There’s also interesting battle for the 1st and 2nd spot on the table between the spurs and Chelsea. PL, as always, is getting exciting as it comes towards the end of the season. The stage is set for a blockbuster EPL ending.
