After his side secured their safe passage to the Europa League quarter-finals, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho launched a furious attack on the treatment Premier League sides receive in the competition.
There is less than 72 hours between United's win over Rostov on Thursday night in continental competition and their trip to Middlesbrough on Sunday in domestic action.
The congested nature of the fixture list for the Red Devils is a problem which the league has done little to help with, according to the Portuguese tactician.
"I don't understand why we don't receive any help from the Premier League in relation to European football," he said.
"We now have to play Middlesbrough at 12 o'clock on Sunday. Why? It should be on Monday night or at least the last game on Sunday. Every other country supports teams playing in Europe but I don't think the Premier League gives a s**t.
"When I was in Italy if you had a Champions League game coming up you could move your league match to Friday night. In Portugal a team playing on the Wednesday in Europe could play its next domestic game on the Monday."This never happens here and it doesn't make any sense. Nobody can give me an explanation of why we are playing this Sunday at 12 o'clock."
The ex-Real Madrid tactician refused to let up in his criticism and highlighted England's further under performing in Europe this season as an example of how teams are struggling with the demands.
"I think that the Premier League just expects everyone to be grateful for all the money it makes but with a little common sense things could be better for everyone," he continued.
"Aren't we good enough in the Premier League to have more teams in Europe at this stage? I don't ask for me but for all the English teams.
"Are the Premier League happy to have just one English club in the Champions League and one in the Europa League?"In the last six weeks we have played 11 games and it is going to get worse for us and easier for the other five teams because all of our rivals [for the top four] are out [of Europe] too."
