He does eye-catching stuff, which with all due respect to people who don't understand the game so well, (they) go 'wow, wasn't that great play?'

"We know things like this are very sad all over the world", said Pogba referring to the attack.

The win preserved Mourinho's ideal record in major European finals, adding to his 2003 UEFA Cup victory with FC Porto, and his Champions League triumphs with the same club in 2004 and Inter Milan in 2010.

"United are strong and defend well, which is good".

United are now only the fifth club - alongside Ajax, Chelsea, Juventus and Bayern Munich - to have won all three European trophies.

"Mourinho hates losing, during the week he tried to motivate the team as well as he could, focusing on not committing any errors, we didn't make any mistakes and we played well", Mata told reporters.

United's win allowed people to come together after a bad week and remember what makes this city great.

Arsenal beat Chelsea, win record 13th FA Cup title
Prince William paid his respects to the 22 people who tragically lost their lives during the Manchester attack on Monday. While they missed out on the Champions League next season, they will get their hands on some silverware.

"We performed like a big club, a big team", United midfielder Ander Herrera said after the Europa League final, sounding every inch a future captain of the team. A few mindless idiots shouted during the minute's silence, but applause soon took over as a tribute was paid to those impacted by Monday's bombing.

With an average age of 22 years and 282 days, Ajax named the youngest side ever to start in a major European final.

The final was somber, and it was not because of United's defensive mindset as much as it was Ajax's inability to create goalscoring chances like they have been all season. Quite simply, the competition wasn't worth the effort, with the effects of playing on Thursday night - sometimes in far-flung locations - having an impact on league performances the following Sunday.

Their most significant move came with a weaving run by the on-loan Chelsea striker Bertrand Traore, but it came to an end inside the box after a Daley Blind challenge.

Yet by leading United to victory in the League Cup and Europa League, and with the latter success yielding a Champions League place, he has brought back some of the swagger that vanished when Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

Yes, the strike was going well wide, but that goal was entirely Pogba's making.
