Mourinho speaks on Ibrahimovic, Rojo injuries
Manchester United's mounting injury problems mean they are "in trouble" going into the season's decisive weeks, according to manager Jose Mourinho.
Rojo was taken off on a stretcher after seemingly sustaining a knee injury and Ibrahimovic landed awkwardly just before the quarter-final second leg went to extra-time. We don't have Jones, we don't have Smalling.
"Now we lose Zlatan too". Let's see what happens.
"Even with a insane mentality, they can not play Sunday".
Given Rashford's meteoric rise, it's easy to forget the fact that he's still only 19 years old. "Unfortunately the result isn't so good", said the Belgians' coach Rene Weiler.
When it was put to him that he was facing a significant lack of options at centre-back, Mourinho mentioned Daley Blind - Rojo's replacement from the bench - before suggesting Jones and Smalling needed to be "brave". But he has the experience, the character.
"Now we need absolutely everyone".
"But the news is fairly negative I think".
With a top four spot in the Premier League looking increasingly unlikely, winning the tournament would be the most likely way back into the Champions League.
"Herrera plays. He didn't play (against Anderlecht)", said Mourinho. "He didn't play against Anderlecht because one yellow card and he would miss the semifinal. There is nobody else to play".
Paul Pogba played a pinpoint 40-metre pass along the ground to Rashford who, at the second attempt, found Mkhitaryan on the edge of the box and the Armenian midfielder drilled home his fifth goal in this season's Europa League.
United, buoyed by their Premier League win over Chelsea on Sunday, started confidently and grabbed the early advantage.
Rashford's outstanding displays for United saw him fast-tracked into the England squad for Euro 2016 and there is now talk of him heading to this summer's Under-21 European Championship.
"These are the kind of things that make me trust players", he said.
"[Head of Academy] Nicky Butt does not pick him to play that game". He could, by age.
"He said in the event you must make an adjustment in a different position I will be prepared for this".
