Mourinho: Man Utd can make example for Rostov

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes his club can provide an example for Rostov next week.

According to Mourinho, the Red Devils had an acceptable experience in the lead-up and during their Europa League Round of 16 first leg clash with the Russians at the Stadion Olimp-2.

While the pitch may have been below par, Mourinho was satisfied with everything else as his side drew 1-1, but feels United can give a strong example of how things should be done at Old Trafford next Thursday night.

"I think everything was magnificent," he told MUTV.

"People have been nice to us since we landed, in the game they supported their team like it should be done.

"Our supporters behaved properly and, on the pitch, it was an example - the players fought really hard for every ball but in a positive way.

"Hopefully the Rostov fans who go to Old Trafford next week have great conditions now to be welcomed and for everything to be an example."

Henrikh Mkhitaryan opened the scoring in the 35th before Alexander Bukharov replied for Rostov eight minutes into the second half.
