Jose Mourinho walks out of interview with Sky Sports' Geoff Shreeves

The defeat ends all hope of Manchester United qualifying for the Champions League through the Premier League with Mourinho making eight changes for the trip to London. But with injuries biting at Old Trafford, he said the quest for glory in Europe had left him with no alternatives.
However, with the Europa League final coming up against Ajax, Mourinho says that United have prioritised winning titles instead of fighting for the top four, with the prize for the victor, a Champions League spot.
On Sunday, United still fielded a team that included the likes of Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Michael Carrick. They played 90 minutes the ones that need to play and I rested a few people. "We were pushed for that situation". I can not lose 5-0 or 6-0. We lost against Arsenal 2-0 and we fought for the result.
To his critics, Mourinho said he did not know what was a priority for other clubs, but was clear what United are targeting. "Sometimes I go back home and I am down, but I know I have the power to continue inside me".
"They all know that our game is the final".

Confidence in new French leaders at its lowest in 20 years
As the new French leader received military honours outside Merkel's chancellory, crowds outside the gate chanted his name. Macron said "treaty change long used to be a French taboo", but that this would change now that he was president.
Defeat to Tottenham on Sunday ruled out the prospect of United finishing in the top four domestically, with Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal contesting the final two spots as the season enters its final week.
Jose Mourinho was unapologetic for his team selection against Tottenham after Spurs beat his side 2-1 at White Hart Lane. These are examples of trying not to accumulate [matches] but people have to play because we don't have other players. "And we played in a positive way, especially in the second half when we brought a little more quality into the team".
"I am not upset because we had to make that decision".
'The two goals are bad to concede but the team is not used to playing together'.
Jose Mourinho walked out of his interview with Sky Sports' Geoff Shreeves after Manchester United's 2-1 loss at Tottenham. You can only rest particular players and certain times if you know what your preferred outfit is going to be for the final, and Mourinho, with only 15 established first team players at his disposal, has clearly kept this in mind.
