LONDON. — Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said he would rather win the Europa League title this season than finish in the top four of the English Premier League, even if his side will be fighting their hardest to do both. United, who won the League Cup last month, moved up to fifth in the league, four points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, with a 3-1 league win at Middlesbrough on Sunday. They face Anderlecht next month in the Europa League quarter-finals.
“If I can choose, I will choose the Europa League rather than to finish fourth because it gives us the same – Champions League football,” the 54-year-old told the club website.— Reuters.
