Europa final would be 'perfect' end to season, says Mourinho

Martial might get another chance to prove his worth to Mourinho when United face Anderlecht in the second leg of their UEFA Europa League quarter-final on Thursday night.

Mourinho gave his honest opinion on Anthony Martial when he said, "Do I think Anthony is a player with great potential?"

"That's why Marcus Rashford, even without scoring goals, was always a player that I trust, always a player that I played, always a player that I support".

Mourinho's United now sit fifth in the Premier League on 60 points, with seven games still to play, with a game in hand over fourth-placed Manchester City.

Teenage striker Marcus Rashford enhanced his burgeoning reputation by steering Manchester United into the Europa League semifinals with a coolly taken extra-time victor against Anderlecht on Thursday.

"I think it's time for Jones and Smalling to be courageous, to risk because for the team you have to do everything", Mourinho explained, as quoted by the Daily Mail. "If we had won 3-0 it would be a nice game now and I could play some of the younger boys without any pressure". But he needs to give me things that I like very much.

"He is working now, he is improving", Mourinho said. We are in the Europa League - that's the competition we can win.

"I think it would be the flawless final for us", he added.

Martial was not in United's squad for the 2-0 victory over Mourinho's former club Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday-perhaps the tactical apogee of a stuttering first campaign for the Portuguese player in England's northwest.

"If we need a goal, he can help us".

"He has a good mentality, he is a fighter", the United boss said ahead of Sunday's trip to Burnley, where he confirmed Ander Herrera will start. Nonetheless, he is also probably entitled to think his team could have made life easier for themselves.

Argentina No. 1 Romero has played in each of United's knockout games in the competition this season, with David De Gea not figuring since the encounter with Fenerbahce in November.

"Ultimately, you get punished for that, but they are getting away with it because they are playing lesser opposition in the Europa League".

"I never like to do that, complete separation".

"With his experience and know-how of this knock-out phase, he is a player who can be useful".

The pair spent one night in the cabin before the arrest, but they may have been in the area for about a week, Gilley said. Tad Cummins is 50, married, and a grandfather. "This is not somewhere they had frequently visited", her attorney said.
