Mourinho Says Ajax Shouldn't Even Be In Europa League

"But I don't know about Wayne".

Palace are now 13th going into the final weekend of the season but can end up anywhere between 11th and 16th depending on how they do against United and how other results go.

UEFA Europa League finalists Ajax and Manchester United will carry out media activities at the Friends Arena on Tuesday 23 May for accredited personnel only.

Sunday's fixture is likely to test Palace's desire now that survival is certain, but with United boss Jose Mourinho set to select a weakened XI with the following week's Europa League final in mind, Allardyce has urged his players to consider its consequences.

"We've made a lot of changes behind the scenes, changes on the field, and in the end we've got what we wanted, we're safe with a game to go, we jumped a few places in the league, and everyone should be very satisfied with what they've achieved since I arrived".

Asked if the 31-year-old Rooney will play on Sunday, Mourinho said: "I will bring three or four of the first-team players, to play one half each one".

"Paul is fine", the United manager said.


"Chris Smalling has a small problem". I just thought it was going to be a discussion about how we navigate through it.

Mourinho confirmed 19-year-old defenders Tim Fosu-Mensah, back after a shoulder injury, and Axel Tuanzebe would also play on Sunday - a bold, callow selection borne out of necessity.

Now, he will rest everybody this week and the next time they play, the last time they played together as a team would have been against Celta Vigo. I really don't know. "I don't think the age of the players is important, the quality is".

This will be a match for youngsters to get some Premier League minutes under their belt and could dictate their futures.

"I got a call and the phone didn't stop ringing", he says. He played 90 minutes in the last match, so probably not. The Dutch side were knocked out of this season's Champions League in the last qualifying round and, as a result, dropped into Europe's secondary competition.

They won the EFL Cup in February and could clinch Champions League football, if they beat Ajax in the Europa League final next Wednesday in Stockholm. It's for teams who go into the Europa League like us'.
