Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has defended his decision to prioritise winning the Europa League over finishing fourth in the English Premier League.
Their best hope is to win the Europa League, starting with victory over Celta Vigo in Thursday's semi-final second leg, in which they hold a 1-0 advantage from the first match. This is the Manchester United that has won 20 league titles in England's top flight and three Champions League titles. It doesn't matter what happened before, how big the matches before were.
On Thursday, 11.05.2017 at 22:05, in the next return match in the semifinal round of the play-off phase of the League of Europe, at Old Trafford Manchester United will play against Celta. The winners of the final will qualify for the Champions League. I would like to play more but I've tried to help the team on and off pitch.
The Celta Vigo star endured a hard time during his spell at Anfield, featuring just 14 times over the course of two seasons, and he is infamous for a corner kick he took against Chelsea as the Reds missed out on Premier League glory in 2013-14.
Keane also had his say on Wayne Rooney's future and believes the England man should depart Old Trafford for his own good.

Bleacher Report posits that Owens will successfully defend his place, but that does not mean Styles will not put up a fight. Finally, The Usos and Breezango (Tyler Breeze and Fandango) will go head-to-head for the SmackDown tag team championship.
Mourinho steered United to League Cup success in February but with the club unlikely to finish in the top four it appears they will need to win the Europa League if they are to secure a Champions League berth next season.
For the club it will be very important to be again in a European final.
But Mourinho insists such thoughts do not enter his psyche and that winning the competition is his only motivation. That, together with their current travails in front of goal means that we expect Utd to continue their excellent defensive at home in this competition and ease through to the final. "If we can win Europa League, that will be three trophies [this season]".
But Mourinho insists winning the second-tier Europa League for the first time would rival those achievements in 1968, 1999 and 2008 because United can not continue living off their illustrious past. As it now stand, Manchester United lead by one goals with that being an away goal but the game is still very close and I think we can expect a very good contest. "It didn't annoy me; I understood that I couldn't play with them at that level".
