Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has congratulated his players for their performance at Rostov despite their 1-1 against the Russian side.
The 54-year-old former Chelsea boss insists that it was impossible to get a better result in Russia, as the pitch was very terrible and not conducive.
Henrikh Mkhiaryan scored the opener for United in the first half, but his goal was cancelled in the second half by Aleksandr Bukharov after the break, leading the game to end in a 1-1 at full time.
Mourinho who has his eyes fixed on winning the Europa Cup knows that it is the surest way for United to qualify for the champions league next season.
Hence, winning the Europa league is key for Manchester United.
United are currently seated on sixth position on the premier league table with 49 points and are 17 points adrift league leaders Chelsea who are having 66 points with eleven matches left to end the season.
