Youthful Ajax lose 2-0 to Manchester United in Europa League final

26 May 2017, 09:52 | Susie Olson

Football seems trivial at a time of such pain but United won for their city in Stockholm, with Mourinho's men winning the Europa League as goals from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan secured a 2-0 triumph.

Twenty two people died and more than 100 were injured after a suicide bomb attack at the Manchester Arena where American pop singer Ariana Grande was holding a concert on Monday. "We pray for peace".

"That's how we felt before the game, that's how we feel now". Some will fight back with barbs about the world's most expensively-assembled football team finishing 24 points off the top of the Premier League table, but what's the difference between one and 24 once the silverware is out of your grasp? "We've done it, and we're proud", Pogba said.

Enjoyed that? Keep reading, we have something else for you.

. I am very happy and I thank everyone that had a contribution for that, and I'm not speaking just about the players. I'm happy that I scored here today in the final because everyone was saying, "You're going to score in the final" and after the last game against Celta Vigo I was dreaming about scoring in the final and I did.

Liverpool made it through to the group stage, but due to the nature of their qualification, were not given "association protection" - meaning they could be drawn against another Premier League club in the groups.

Two will always miss out, so qualifying for the Champions League through the back door - via the Europa League - is increasingly enticing.

"Today was all or nothing - nearly nothing for us", Mata said, before smiling. I think, to answer your question before, it's right to say we want to qualify for the Champions League, but you know, you want to go try and win that trophy.

"We focused on the football match, which I think we played really well and the boys deserve this moment".

"It is the end of a hard season but a very good season, we prefer this way than finish fourth".

Yeah, of course. Look at Tottenham, they have had a fantastic season, finished second, with no trophies to show for it.

They claimed their 42nd major trophy.

"I want to dedicate the trophy to the victims", the Spanish midfielder told a press conference.
