Amid mounting media speculation that De Gea could join Real Madrid next season, Mourinho also expressed hope the Spaniard would stay at Old Trafford when asked when United fans would see him in action again. I hope to play Sergio in the final. "David is top of the world and obviously we want to keep him".

"We played a good team, a team who tried to win and tried to finish well", Mourinho said after visiting goalkeeper Sergio Romero saved a barrage of hard shots, including Manolo Gabbiadini's fifth-minute penalty.

"I'm here (in English football) already seven years; I never saw any detail of trying to care about the English teams involved in European competitions".

Southampton struggled to relieve the pressure building on manager Claude Puel against an under-strength United.

Mourinho is unhappy United's final match of the season at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday has not been brought forward 24 hours to give his players longer to prepare for next Wednesday's crunch match with Ajax in Stockholm.

"But it's a shame and I think to have had this situation with this opportunity and good play with many possibilities and opportunities is good work for the next game and of course to find the clinical edge".

"Fellaini, on top of his experience, he says it's not a tear", Mourinho told MUTV.

"The team wasn't ideal but individually they gave me good things". Sergio had a very good performance - more than very good. "They showed me they want to be an option for the final". "After the season we have time to discuss and speak about this, and make a debrief".

The result did neither side any favours as Southampton, beaten by United 3-2 in the showpiece event at Wembley in February, have now won just one of their last eight games in all competitions while United stretched their winless league run to five games.

"We had two different halves - the first one was without intensity and it was very hard after the penalty because that would have given us the confidence. It's a problem perhaps for us but in the second half I'm happy with our comeback".
