'We'd exchange cup for victims' lives' - Mourinho

"We preferred to reach the Champions League this way than finish fourth, third or second", said Mourinho.

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.

Rooney - who has been at United for 13 years - is under contract until 2019.

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

The backdrop to this final had been hard in the extreme but, as Mourinho had stated, United had a job to do and they went about it with all the qualities that would usually be associated with one of his teams.

"So so so happy with our win tonight!"

Ander Herrera, voted the man of the match, said the club had been suffering on Tuesday, but echoed Pogba's sentiments.

Victory enabled Mourinho, who said prior to the game that he and his players were struggling not to think about the tragedy, to bring his maiden Old Trafford season to a successful conclusion.

Mourinho's side finished off a disappointing Premier League campaign with a comfortable 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon, playing a team almost entirely comprised of youngsters and second-string players.

United are now only the fifth club - alongside Ajax, Chelsea, Juventus and Bayern Munich - to have won all three European trophies. "It was unbelievable", the ex-England defender told BBC Radio 5 live.

"I thought the game was boring".

"Last night United gave the city a lift".

Robbie Savage believes that Manchester United need to make at least five new signings in the summer transfer window.

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.

"On Wednesday, it felt the heart wasn't in it".

What an incredible achievement from Jose Mourinho!

But having fielded a team with an average age of 22 years and 282 days, the youngest to ever start a major European final, he expressed hope they would be better for the experience.

Let us know your thoughts, below. Their reaction? Get in the vehicle and drive.

"But on game-day, these fans didn't quite know what to do".

"But the manager told us the only thing we could do was to win this for them and that's what we've done".
