The United boss spoke to the press after his side saw off Celta Vigo 2-1 on aggregate to book their place in the final.

Mourinho said, ”Ajax have reached the final and now can only concentrate on the final. Their league finishes on Sunday and they then have 12 days to prepare for the Europa League final.

”In the same period we have three Premier League matches. Hopefully Crystal Palace will not need the points on the final day of Premier League because I am going to make a lot of changes on the last day of the season.

”Nobody can blame us for doing such a thing because we play a final three days later. ”
