Jose Mourinho: Manchester United manager worried about fixture congestion
Manchester United "will be in trouble" in April and May if they continue to progress in the Europa League and the FA Cup, says manager Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho is worried about fixture congestion towards the end of the season.
United, who entertain Saint-Etienne in the Europa League on Thursday, are at Championship Blackburn in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday.
"We cannot choose competitions. We play competitions to win," said Mourinho.
United are sixth in the Premier League, two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal with 13 matches remaining.
Their next top-flight game is at home to Bournemouth on 4 March, by which time Mourinho could have secured his first major trophy as United boss.
His side face Southampton in the EFL Cup final at Wembley on 26 February.
"FA Cup, League Cup... it's really hard for us and if we progress in competitions in April and May we will be in trouble," added Mourinho.
