Late Fellaini victor sends Man United into knockout stages

Despite qualifying for the knockout rounds with a game to spare, United's performance was far from convincing, with Marouane Fellaini's injury-time goal the difference.

" Let me send a message to my lovers and say that I played Champions League for 14 years and I qualified 14 times".

"The season I didn't play Champions League, I won the Europa League.

For the ones that have a nice life, is different", Mourinho said.

Spain worldwide De Gea, 28, joined United from Atletico Madrid in 2011.

However, former Manchester United midfielder Scholes was less than impressed by the reaction of the Red Devils boss on the sidelines on Tuesday night.

"You need a thick skin, of course, playing for the manager but 100% this club, it's the biggest club in the world and we as players need to take what's said on board". "Everybody knows I am a team player", said Fellaini, who said he felt the belief from Mourinho. As he turned, he appeared to control the ball partly with his hand, before hitting a shot through Loris Benito's legs and into the bottom corner. "We all know what he's won or what his teams have won". One minute, he is the midfield destroyer papering over the cracks in the Man United defence, the next he is the target man, grabbing a last-minute goal to bail Jose Mourinho out once again.

"But it is still very hard to score".

Mourinho has pointed to his accomplishments a few times lately.

Mourinho defended his decision to drop Pogba and Lukaku by referring to the clamour for Rashford to get more starts up front by certain sections of the English media. But obviously the most important thing is to qualify.

Romelu Lukaku has also been relegated to the bench with Marcus Rashford coming in as part of a three-man attack line alongside Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard. Not many of them were there.

Mourinho would rather the focus be on the players he selected and not those he left out. The Belgian is hardly a brilliant player, but like Liam Neeson in Taken, he has a particular set of skills and that makes him very risky to pretty much everyone. Without that save there's no winning goal.
