Mourinho regret s 'naive' Bailly's Europa red card

Marouane Fellaini's first-half header doubled United's aggregate lead before Facundo Roncaglia set up a nervy final few minutes by nodding home for the Spanish side.

United appeared to be coasting to victory following Marouane Fellaini's early header before Celta set up a tense finale courtesy of Facundo Roncaglia's strike and nearly snatched an unlikely aggregate victory in the dying embers.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's ferocious shot was well blocked by Celta keeper Sergio Alvarez at the start of the second stanza as United looked to put the game to bed, yet Celta continued in their pursuit of a comeback, John Guidetti flashing his effort wide when he should have found the target form close range.

As it was, he was one of the more rested members of United's first team against Celta Vigo for the second leg of their Europa League semi-final. Manchester United drew the match but go through to the final 2-1 over both legs.

Like United, who won 2-1 on aggregate, Ajax only just scraped into the final.

Led by Bobby Charlton and George Best, Matt Busby's side became the first English team to win the European Cup with a 4-1 win over Benfica at Wembley.

Two years ago in another Europa League tie, Sisto had scored for Midtjylland to inflict one of the most embarrassing defeats in Manchester United's European history.

Several players then became embroiled in a fracas, and at the end of it both teams had a player sent off. Goalscorer Roncaglia and Bailly were both shown red cards.

"In the end, when the game was hard, when they were better than us, when we were in trouble and not playing well, I think that mentality, desire, togetherness made the boys fight until the end".

Eduardo Berizzo's men gave a much better account of themselves compared to the first leg, and their persistence in front of goal paid off with five minutes to go. We suffered until the end and it was open until the last second. You can not win a semi-final easily, or be calm. "They played the game really well, responded well to the atmosphere and I've told them they will get another chance".

Marouane Fellaini's first half goal means they will be in the final on May 24th against Ajax in Stockholm's Friends Arena.

Mourinho, who has targeted a Europa League triumph as a way for United to qualify for next season's Champions League, described Ivorian defender Bailly's performance as phenomenal.

Mourinho's side also face a trip to Southampton before rounding off their campaign with a home game against Crystal Palace.

However, United then made a decision to sit and invite Celta onto them for the remainder of the game and, in the 86th minute, the cat was really thrown amongst the pigeons.
