Mourinho plays down Fellaini injury fears
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has allayed fears that Marouane Fellaini could be added to the injury list ahead of the Europa League final against Ajax.
The Belgian midfielder was forced off in the 77th minute of their goalless draw against Southampton on Wednesday, leading to concerns that he could miss the big showdown in Stockholm next week.
"Fellaini hasn't got a tear but he's experienced enough to know he had a feeling. Apart from that nothing. It's all good," Mourinho was quoted by AFP.
The Portuguese coach has already revealed that Sergio Romero would start the final ahead of usual first-choice goalkeeper David de Gea, and was impressed with a number of other "fringe" players who put in a shift against the Saints.
"I think all of them gave me positive feelings. Sergio had a very good performance, more than very good," he said.
"The team wasn't perfect but individually they gave me good things. They showed me they want to be an option for the final."
