Herrera: We Won It For Manchester

Manchester United's Juan Mata in the stands

Manchester United fans talk about the terrorist attack on the Ariana Grande pop concert as they prepare to watch their football team play in the Europa League final in Stockholm, Sweden.

While the English club finished a disappointing sixth in the just concluded Premier League season, winning the Europa League has earned them a place in Europe's elite club competition.

Prior to this victory they had won the European Cup on three occasions, in 1968, 1999 and 2008, and the Cup Winners' Cup in 1991.

"We knew where we better, where they were better than us". Based on pragmatism and humble principles.

Here's a look at Fergie all smiles after the 2-0 victory at the Friends Arena.

Rooney went on to lift the trophy in what seemed like a farewell to the club, but Mourinho insists that he would be "very happy" to keep the England skipper. "This happened in Manchester but everywhere we want to see a united world and fight for peace, respect in the world-no more attack and no more deaths please".




"Of course, Champions League is bigger than Europa League, but that is the last trophy and that is when the feelings are under the skin and obviously it is a fantastic feeling for the team". It means going back to the Champions League and playing in the European Super Cup next August.

The game was billed as a clash between the pragmatism of Mourinho's United against the swagger and youthful exuberance of an Ajax side featuring six players aged 21 or under and in the club's first European final in 21 years.

Manchester United made their intentions clear from the start and were close after just thirty seconds. "You have to learn from it". That's a lot of experience I can contribute to the team. "We are all together and all we have to do is keep together and stay strong".

Paul Pogba dedicated Manchester United's Europa League title triumph to the 22 people killed in Monday's attack in Manchester, defiantly saying: "We played for the people who died".

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

He continued: "Yesterday [Tuesday] morning we were devastated, we were really, really sad because when you think about life and football you have no choice".
