Jose Mourinho admits he regrets some of his attacks on Arsene Wenger

Jose Mourinho has decided that David De Gea and Nemanja Matic are the "outstanding candidates" to take over as Manchester United captain from next season, according to reports in the British media.

And Wenger has acknowledged just how good United were at that time. I missed the 6-1 defeat in 2001 through injury and remember the boss pulling me shortly afterwards and saying, 'When are you going to be fit?' He had never said anything like that to me before but it showed how much those games meant to him. "And from us, the club, he is going to feel the respect we have".

While he didn't enjoy the best of relationships with Louis van Gaal, De Gea thinks United are heading in the right direction under Mourinho even though they will end the campaign trophyless.

Arsenal have nothing to play for in the Premier League anymore and they will be focused on the Europa League return leg against Atletico Madrid.

Jose Mourinho's men are in need of three points to guarantee Champions League football next season.

De Gea is approaching the last year of his contract with United, although the club retain an option to extend it for another year.
