Mourinho Names His Most Important Match as Manchester United Coach

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho admits that he will only target Champions League success once his side overcome Sevilla at the last-16 stage.

United arrive in good form after beating rivals Liverpool 2-1 on Saturday evening.

Whilst the game against Sevilla would decide United's report card in Europe, the game on Sunday against Brighton in the FA Cup is another must win. He plays for Manchester United many, many matches.

However, with City seemingly just a few weeks away from sealing the title and having already booked their place in the Champions League quarter-finals, the pressure is on United to join them in Friday's draw when they host Sevilla on Tuesday. Liverpool is a big match, a match against a direct competitor for the top four but nothing is decided. But nothing is decided yet.

"In these types of games, when the pressure is on you, you just be yourself and I think that's what seems to happen in these games and the team seems to react well, when maybe we don't react as well in other games".

Mourinho's men have been written off at various points this campaign and major questions were asked and decisions queries ahead of each of their last three league games.

"There comes a time, wether you like it or you don't like it, that your body tells you it is time to stop playing football".

As you walk down the corridor more images detailing United's European adventures are displayed.

At Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho's side should have the encouragement to attack from the off, but they still need to be wary of conceding an away goal, which could be detrimental, as they would then have to score at least twice, to stay in the competition.

Jesse Lingard, a late substitute, also echoed the manager's sentiment.

But, the Frenchman is likely to have to bide his time on the bench to begin with, with Marcus Rashford making a case for a start following his match-winning brace against Liverpool. Even in set pieces, corners, risky situations we were in control so I think we deserved it.

"They're on a roll, but we hope to interrupt United's good run".

"I'm really happy - probably I think that Gareth Southgate doesn't mind that".

The 21-year-old, who has recently chosen to play for Scotland over England, was placed alongside Matic in a midfield pivot after Paul Pogba suffered an injury on the eve of the game.

"He's downstairs now and I will go and speak with him. I wanted to finish on my own terms so I was determined to get back fit". "Of course we are not that far behind in our development".
