Jose Mourinho ''We fully deserved to win ''

Alex Ferguson believes Manchester United winning the Europa League was a "lift" to the people of Manchester after Monday's (UK time) deadly terror attack.

Nonetheless, England's highest scorer says he won't play for another Premier League club.

Juan Mata praised Jose Mourinho's remarkable knack for coming out on top on the biggest occasions after Manchester United beat Ajax Amsterdam 2-0 on Wednesday to signal the Portuguese coach's 12th triumph in a final from 14 attempts.

"But the world goes on". "I am very humble when I play finals".

"If we could, we would obviously change the people's lives for this cup, immediately", the manager said after the match.

"This is maybe not the moment to talk about my future, having just won the Europa League". "And we didn't. we just came to do our job".

United, wearing all blue as they did in winning the 1968 European Cup final, made an imposing start, with Pogba whistling a shot wide of the near post within the first minute.

Mourinho, a UEFA Cup victor with Porto in 2003 and two-time European champion, has now won all four of the major European finals he has contested.

"That's the way I look at things".

A Juve win against Real Madrid in Cardiff on June 3 would see the Italian giants face United in the UEFA Super Cup and Pogba welcomed that potential clash.

"It means for the club the last piece of the puzzle, it is now like Ajax is and some other clubs - a club with every trophy in the world of football".

"We did it, so we're very proud".

Mourinho when asked if he will try to sign B. Silva: "I do not think so, honestly". Then we had to go out and put a performance in to win the game. We had a bit more possession after 15, 20 minutes or so.

"You wonder if Marcus Rashford is good enough to be the number nine, he is a huge talent but does he score enough goals?"

"Often, to win finals you must first lose them".

Premier League teams do not really make it that big in the UEFA Champions League, it's a known fact.

They got their hands on the much-coveted Community Shield last August before the definitely-not-Mickey-Mouse EFL Cup arrived in February.
