Manchester United Draw RSC Anderlecht in Europa League Quarterfinals

Man United 1-0 FC Rostov- Russian fairytale ends at Old Trafford

FC Rostov's Nikita Medvedev saves from Manchester United's Henrikh Mkhitaryan

He's the manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs on the planet, the squad he's got, the players.

Manchester United's progress to the Europa League quarter-finals was overshadowed by the world's most expensive footballer Paul Pogba's injury during their 1-0 win over Rostov here.

"But Mourinho has launched a passionate defence of Pogba, still only 24, and insists his strong personality means that he "does not give a 's" about his critics. "What matches? Man United reserves could've won that game".

They'll now take on Anderlecht over two legs with a spot in the last four up for grabs.

The Portuguese coach was not pleased that their FA Cup quarter-final defeat at Chelsea, originally scheduled for last weekend, was moved to Monday so it could be televised.

Since moving to Lyon, the Dutch worldwide has provided plenty of highlights in games and training to display the quality we all knew he had, but he explained to beIN Sport why he believes former boss Jose Mourinho let him go.

Normally the enemies should be Rostov, but we have a lot of enemies.

The Riverside Stadium showdown kicks off at 12:00 (GMT) on Sunday, with TV coverage in the United Kingdom getting underway at 11:00 (GMT) on BT Sport 1.

"I get the idea that the Premier League just expects everyone to be grateful for all the money it makes".

And he says it will be impossible for his side to enjoy the same level of unprecedented success as they did with Alex Ferguson at the helm, the Scot winning 13 Premier League titles during his 26 years in charge. "We should play Monday". When I watch marathons and people go to their limit, I don't think it is amusing, and I don't think it's amusing some of my players in six weeks play 11 matches. "That would be great result". Captain Wayne Rooney is set to return from a long-term injury on Sunday. Boro will also be fighting for their right to stay in the Premier League, with the club mired in the relegation places, second from bottom and three points short of safety. Yet there's no denying how big a blow it would be for a club promoted last summer to fall straight out of England's top flight after just one season.

"I would never have sold di Maria, Chicharito (Hernandez), Danny Welbeck - never, no chance", he said.

He said: "You never know, we didn't think we would beat Zenit either".
