Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, says he will be “killed” by the media, if they lose to Chelsea in the FA Cup final.
United came from behind to beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 on Saturday in the first
semi-final and will take on Chelsea, who saw off Southampton 2-0 yesterday.
The competition is Mourinho’s only chance to finish the season with silverware.
“When I don’t win, you kill me. Because I almost do that all the time, when I don’t do it,
you kill me, which is what you are all ready to do,” he said.
Mourinho also warned United are expecting to spend big this summer and hinted that he fears
Marouane Fellaini will leave as the Belgium midfielder has yet to sign a new contract.
Mourinho added: “We are going to invest the basic to improve our squad.
We need to find a replacement for Michael Carrick, if Marouane Fellaini leaves,
we need to find a replacement for Marouane Fellaini.
“In the squad, there is always a player or a couple of players,
they are not playing a lot, and they will try obviously to leave,
so we are going again to touch our squad and to believe that more than spend,
is probably the evolution of our players.
“We have some young players that need to get opportunities with their evolution, so let’s see.
“But in this moment, I don’t even think about next season or the final,
I think about Arsenal because we need one point to finish top four but we need seven points to
finish second and we deserve to finish second and we have to finish second.”
