Jose Mourinho: 'Difficult to motivate Manchester United players'

Speaking at a news conference ahead of Manchester United's final Premier League game of the season, Mourinho said: "The reality of the numbers is between second and fifth, the difference is three or four or five points but the difference between the first and second is a difference of 19".

"17 years and the kid is now a man".

"I think it will be Michael Carrick in future, when he has his badges", he said.

Mourinho made nine changes to the side which beat the Hornets thanks to a Marcus Rashford tap-in made by Carrick's long pass and laid on by Juan Mata's selflessness.

"I will organise my staff in a system where an assistant manager doesn't exist".

Pep Guardiola will be able to sit back and watch Saturday's FA Cup final with a satisfied smile - if not smirk - on his face, knowing that for the second time in two seasons of English football he has outdone his old adversary Jose Mourinho.

That was the 20th direct meeting between the two managers, giving Guardiola a 10th win with six draws, although Mourinho did delay City's title celebrations when United hit back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 an extraordinary return game last month.

Fuel prices revised; petrol, diesel to cost more
On the other hand, diesel was retailing at Rs 68.68 in Kolkata; Rs 70,43 in Mumbai; Rs 69.79 in Chennai and Rs 67.27 in Bengaluru. Last June, Indian oil companies had moved from a "once-in-a-fortnight" change of petrol and diesel prices to daily revisions.

"He has been very successful for the club, one of the best midfielders in the last 10 years in the world, and he is a big loss".

But there was still a moment to remember late on as Carrick's 464th United appearance came to a close, receiving a standing ovation as he was replaced by Paul Pogba on a day that belonged to one of the club's most distinguished servants. I will have specific coaches, analysts and no assistant manager.

"This is an fantastic place to play football and it's the greatest club in the world".

"He [Martial] is injured". "He had treatment in the morning [on Sunday] at the training ground". And everybody told me we would get that point.

Meanwhile, Mourinho had a positive update on Romelu Lukaku, as he added, "I'm waiting for the doctor but when it's impossible to play today, I have my doubts (for the cup final)".

"I've already spoken many times with the owner".

"I'm sure the owner will try to improve the level of the squad and the team, try to improve the position in the table".
