Mourinho's final press conference lasts just 11 seconds

Crystal Palace boss Sam Allardyce has never been relegated

Crystal Palace boss Sam Allardyce has never been relegated

Ander Herrera has insisted that Manchester United do not have any other option but to beat Ajax and win the Europa League final. Mourinho's first game in charge did not bode well, with a bemused Mata sent on as a 66th-minute substitute in the Community Shield against Leicester and then replaced before full-time.

United fell short of qualifying via a top-four Premier League finish - a 69-point haul leaving them sixth - meaning the Ajax clash assumes extra significance, a fact not lost on Mata. "It's the last game of the season and we were given a chance to impress".

"I don't want to think about if, if, if [they qualify for the Champions League]".

As a result, the journos couldn't get any clarity on Paul Pogba's early withdrawal before Wednesday's Europa League final or the excellent performance from 21-year-old striker Josh Harrop.

"I got hugely criticised for it and Crystal Palace got up there and then fell away and that continued into the next season.We have to be careful about where we get in the league because if it's not sustainable people won't have that". We have a good relationship and I will always say nothing ever happened, we didn't have an argument or anything like that. "The Champions League is the best competition and it's one this club should be playing in every season".

"He studies the rivals a lot and he obviously watched so many Ajax matches, particularly the one against Lyon in the semi-final".

Small plane crashes in Barron County
Wisconsin officials said one teenager died and another was seriously injured after a small plane crashed near the city of Chetek. Fitzgerald said late May 24, that a single-engine, two-seater plane crashed in the Red Cedar River southeast of Chetek.

Herrera also explained how a meeting with Mourinho saw him switch his role in the team this season - although he admits he still wants to score more goals for the club in the future.

The Spanish star, 29, said: "He has been in so many finals and the mentality he gives to the players - to not just be in a final but win that final - is very important". "We will bring the ones who I think are more adapted to our team at the moment".

"That is what he is good at, speaking about how we can be ready".

McTominay is another dreaming of making a long-term impact at United.

"If you don't win you are out".

Mata believes victory will provide the springboard to challenge for the major honours again. "We can make history for the club, so that's the only thing I have in my mind", he added.
