Some of the Manchester United players have been sharing photos on social media of them celebrating after winning the Europa League with a 2-0 victory over Ajax in Stockholm last night. We were really, really sad because you think of life and football - you have no choice.

"In this club it makes me feel that I did nothing", said Mourinho.

Man United will go straight into the group stages along with Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City, the top three in the Premier League. At times like this, we have to come together.

Mata, like his team-mates, dedicated the triumph to the city he calls home, saying Europa League success meant more than winning the World Cup, European Championship or Champions League given the circumstances. "And we didn't. we just came to do our job". Mourinho said: "It is so unfair what happened to him".

"But the world goes on, it doesn't stop and we have to do our work".

Rooney could not say if the game would be his last in a Manchester United shirt. "If he stays with us next season, I'm more than happy with that".

"These things are awful all over the world, in London and in Paris", said Pogba, who was also playing at the Stade de France on the night of the November 2015 Paris terror attacks. "We are all proud of them, it was a great achievement", Ferguson told Sky Sports News.

Henrik Mkhitaryan added the second three minutes after the break to kill off Ajax, who fielded the youngest ever starting lineup in a European final with an average age of 22.

"Especially because you have two legends - many of them - but two are legends in terms of titles and trophies".

"Yesterday (Tuesday) morning we were devastated". It was really, really hard to train. - Jose Mourinho is the first manager to win both the European Cup/Champions League (2) & UEFA Cup/Europa League (2) a couple of times. United was the 2-0 victor, bringing home the prestigious trophy and, ever so briefly, providing a small lift.

Juan Mata and Chris Smalling emphasised how Manchester United were extra motivated to win the Europa League following Monday's atrocities at Manchester Arena.
