The quarter-final Carabao Cup defeat to Bristol City and a last-16 UEFA Champions League exit at the hands of Sevilla has tainted his record at the Red Devils after winning the Carabao Cup and Europa League in his debut campaign.
The final will also reunite Conte with the manager he called a "little man" and a "fake" back in January, in response to Mourinho's decision to reference the match-fixing investigation he faced - before eventually being cleared of all wrongdoing - during his time coaching in Italy.
He said: "I was really happy and pleased".
As much as I like Poch, the fact is that there are better managers out there and a couple of Champions league winners free right now.
"In your blood and heart there is a will to win".
"We have won nothing yet", Herrera told MUTV. "I have great respect for United's story, for Mourinho's story and they have the same respect for ours".
With United on the ropes after Dele Alli's 11th-minute opener, Sanchez hauled his team back into the game with a stunning header from a handsome Pogba cross just 13 minutes later. If Spurs are not going to pay the big wages then there has to be a reason - other than a player's love for the club - for them to stay at Tottenham.
Victory next month would be a third trophy in two seasons for Mourinho's United and the Portuguese would join Herbert Chapman (Huddersfield in 1922 and Arsenal in 1930) and Billy Walker (Sheffield Wednesday in 1935 and Nottingham Forest in 1959) in winning the knockout competition for two clubs.
He said: "Right now I am at Man United and I am thinking exclusively about the present, the FA Cup and the coming World Cup". The two embraced on the final whistle but Mourinho emerged triumphant.
"I definitely believe that we can do better than this with this group".
"Morata is an important striker and is younger than Olivier". "We could finish this season with 88, 89, 90 points". He has less experience. He has less experience and is less strong physically but he is very fast to get into the space. "Not acceptable, the last defeat because we need one point to finish top four, but we need seven points to finish second and we deserve to finish second and we have to finish second". "We felt it would be very hard to lose the game".
