Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is known for his constant excuses and complains and he’s at it again.
Chelsea will host Manchester United on March 13 in an FA Cup quarter final clash and Mourinho is furious about the date chosen for the match.
“I am really surprised that the decision is made before our draw in Europe because at this moment nobody knows where we play, where the first and second matches are,” Mourinho said.
“Imagine we play Chelsea on Monday and go to the second match in Europe in Russia, Turkey or Greece?
“I think, once more, the interests are going in front of the clubs and English football’s interests, and nobody cares about it.
“I cannot play against Chelsea with the second team, I cannot play Chelsea with the U21s like Manchester City did last year. I cannot do that. We are Manchester United.
“I don’t do that as Manchester United manager. I don’t do that to the FA Cup because the FA Cup is not guilty of these decisions.
“The FA Cup is beautiful, the competition is historical. I have to treat Manchester United supporters and the FA Cup in the right way.
“I cannot go there with U21s. Probably they would deserve it but I don’t do that.
“So what is going to happen is an accumulation of matches. People playing a lot of matches. I have to make some rotation but some of the boys will have to play in all these consecutive matches.”
