Brilliant Rashford sends United to Europa League semis

United find out their semi-final opponents in Friday's draw, with Ajax, Celta Vigo or Lyon lying in wait.

United lost striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to a knee injury during Thursday's Europa League quarter-final win over Anderlecht but Mourinho said Rashford "cannot play every game". But he has the experience and character, so he has to'.

"We came back from holiday at the same time and four of us trained away from the rest of the squad for a week", Fellaini said.

Rojo's injury leaves United without three first-choice centre backs with Mourinho calling on injured pair Phil Jones and Chris Smalling to be "brave" and help the team's cause. "After tomorrow then I can speak what I feel because I am a manager, not a doctor".

"They have injuries, and even with a insane mentality, they can not play Sunday (at Burnley in the Premier League)".

But faced with a growing injury list, Mourinho said he doesn't want to see Rashford playing at age-group level.

'Herrera plays (at Burnley).

The Portuguese manager has gotten into the habit of criticizing his players recently but had nothing but praise for the young striker on Thursday.

The British High Commission in Nigeria added: "Our deepest sympathy for the loss of lives in Calabar during a Europa League football match".

Rashford also scored in United's 2-0 victory over league leaders Chelsea last weekend.

"Some other players don't realise what makes me trust a player and Marcus I trust". Let's say in a derby against Manchester City, [United coach] Nicky Butt doesn't pick him to play that game.

"Nicky Butt doesn't take him to play that game".

"He could by age, so when you reach a certain level - and he's reached that level for a long time - I don't think it makes sense, but the power is in their hands". "But the power is in their (the Football Association's) hands".
