Man Utd dominate UEFA's Europa League Squad of the Season

Man Utd dominate UEFA's Europa League Squad of the Season

It is only football, and it can never banish the pain felt by many in Manchester after the horrific attack on their city.

Goals from France global Pogba and Armenian Henrik Mkhitaryan in each half gave United their first European trophy since 2008, and their first Europa League crown.

United manager Jose Mourinho was jubilant but also put things in perspective: "If we could, we would change peoples' lives for this cup - we would not think twice".

Manchester United won the Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League in Mourinho's first campaign at the club.

"We played for England, we played for Manchester, and we played for the people who died".

Goals from Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan sealed a 2-0 win for the Red Devils - and Champions League qualification - against Ajax Amsterdam at the Friends Arena in Stockholm on Wednesday night.

Though that burden doesn't fall exclusively upon the young Frenchman, who has impressed at times and stabilised the United midfield, his failure to capture the imagination as football's most expensive ever player has been symbolic of United's disappointing season.

"That's why yesterday we didn't want to have the press conference because we had to prepare ourselves to do our job and to try to forget events that are obviously much more important than our job".

He added: "In this club it makes me feel that I did nothing. If he stays with us next season, I'm more than happy with that".

"He is a very important player for us".

Do you think any of the above would suit Manchester United's style of play?

"Honestly, I've said before, I don't know", the United skipper said when asked if he would still be at the club next term. Game of the season, couldn't talk of good season if we had not won it. We are very proud. Does this cup make the city of Manchester a bit happier? Obviously I am happy to be part of that and in some way help the club win trophies, and that is the way it has been over the previous year.
