Jose Mourinho has insisted that he doesn’t want to think about next season because he is fully focused on guiding Manchester United to the Europa League title this term.

The Red Devils suffered a 2-1 loss to Tottenham in the Premier League at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon to end their hopes of finishing in the top four in the Premier League.

Manchester United are now relying on Europa League glory as a route into next season’s Champions League.

Mourinho’s men will take on Ajax in the final in Stockholm on May 24 as they look to win the trophy and secure a place in Europe’s elite club competition for next season.

And Mourinho insists that he is now only focused on bringing that title to Old Trafford next week.

Asked if he is targeting the Premier League title next season, Mourinho told BBC Sport: “I don’t want to think about next season – I want to think about the final we have to play in.”
