Mourinho: Ajax should not be in the Europa League

However, Mourinho revealed that Chris Smalling won't be involved against Palace due to a minor knock but the defender should recover in time for the Europa League final.

"It will be a good occasion for the kids but I repeat the best conditions for a debut is being surrounded by a strong structure".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has suggested that as many as 10 youngsters will be included the squad for the final game of the Premier League season against Crystal Palace this weekend as he looks to preserve senior stars for the Europa League final.

"If you don't quality [for the Champions League] I think they should go home".

"We played a good team, a team who tried to win and tried to finish well", Mourinho said after visiting goalkeeper Sergio Romero saved a barrage of hard shots, including Manolo Gabbiadini's fifth-minute penalty.

United take on Ajax next Wednesday in a season-defining contest that could see them land a second major trophy of the season and earn a place in next season's Champions League.

Mitchell, Harrop, Willock and Dearnley would all be making their United debuts if they play any part against Palace.

The best in the world is nearly always the goalscorer, I feel a bit unfairly, so to say (Pogba) is the best in the world is hard to say.

"To play so many kids at the same time, honestly, I don't think it's good".

Mourinho told his prematch news conference: "Paul [Pogba] is fine, a strong guy, a strong mentality".

"With so many at the same time, I think they really need my support, (reserves manager) Nicky Butt's support (and) supporters to understand the hard job they have, because it will not be an easy one for them". "He needs to play on Sunday", Mourinho said of the French worldwide who recently lost his father but was present at United's training session on Friday.

"I know some people like to lie".

Meanwhile, captain Wayne Rooney - who has been linked with a summer transfer - may have missed the chance of an Old Trafford farewell, as Mourinho said the England global would "probably not" be involved. "Wayne Rooney played 90 minutes in the last match so probably not him".
