Eric Bailly could face extended ban after Europa League dismissal

The Argentina global has started the last 10 matches in the competition, including both legs of the semi-final win over Celta Vigo, keeping six clean sheets in the process.

United are now in sixth place on the Premier League table, which puts an added pressure on them grinding out a victory in the Europa League decider.

He accepts that because, especially, he has already played Europa League matches.

Asked whether the Ajax match was now pivotal in determining this season as a success or failure, the Portuguese said: "I think by you, by you media, you have the right to say (that)".

"I am very happy in Manchester, they make me feel important and I hope to stay for a long time". I don't think the boards feel like that because we work very hard.

This is despite Mourinho calling it the biggest game of the season, and even Romero probably knowing De Gea is a better keeper than he is in his heart of hearts. "So I don't think he plays the final, so he has to play the remaining matches in the Premier League and give rest to some of the others".

"Until the injuries arrived, we fought for the Premier League top four". "So receipt of sponsorship next year from Adidas would be £70m if we're in the Champions League, so that would be 30% of that, so £21m reduction".

I never saw in all my career two goalkeepers be so friendly, because it's a position where you always have a little bit of rivalry, especially if you're both the same kind of level. "We did things that nobody in this club in the first season". Big penalty, ' Mourinho told BT Sport after that game.

He also called directly on Smalling and Jones to "be brave" when they were sidelined during the Red Devils' demanding April schedule.

Jose could grasp his third reward as United boss, just to go with the Community Shield as well as the EFL Cup, when his guys meet Ajax on May 24 in Stockholm.
