    FC Rostov v Manchester United (18:00 GMT, Thur)

    Jose Mourinho

    Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has criticised the pitch for his side's Europa League match against Russian side FC Rostov on Thursday.

    Rostov, fifth in the Russian Premier League, play at the Olimp-2 which was built in 1930 and has a capacity of just over 15,000.

    Ahead of the last-16, first leg tie, Mourinho said: "It's hard for me to believe we are going to play on that field - if you can call it a field.

    "I don't know which team to play."

    Uefa told BBC Sport the pitch "may not be in perfect condition, but has been deemed playable" following a pitch inspection on Wednesday.

    The 19-year-old is seen as one of Britain's biggest medal hopes for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games in South Korea.

    "Pretty gutted I broke my back yesterday... Luckily it's nothing too serious so I'll be back in less than 6 weeks for the end of the season!!"
