Manchester United's Europa League win completes the set

United clinched the Europa title only 48 hours after a bombing attack at the Manchester Arena killed 22 persons and injured over 60.

Manchester United's Paul Pogba celebrates with the UEFA Europa League trophy after winning their match against Ajax Amsterdam on May 24, 2017 at the Friends Arena in Solna outside Stockholm.

'What I was saying was probably something they told me before the match.

Man United will go straight into the group stages along with Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City, the top three in the Premier League. "They put on a block and stayed way from everything and concentrated on a football match, which we did very well". We went behind to a deflected shot and then it was very hard against such a side.

The former Sweden global was pleased to see his team add to the Community Shield and EFL Cup crowns they had already secured this season. "We've done it, and we're proud", said Pogba. "But we got it all".

"We have won a trophy the club has never won, so we are really happy", said Mata.

"We play Champions League next season, we could celebrate three trophies and we are happy for that".

Capitals overwhelm Penguins 5-2 to force Game 7
Just 16 seconds in, Backstrom got a two-on-one rush and blasted the puck into the top of Marc-Andre Fleury's net. It was a scary scene, considering Crosby missed Game 4 after sustaining a concussion during Game 3.


There has a big update in Manchester United's pursuit of Antoine Griezmann.

"I am really sorry he was not able to play this final but he played outside with the other guys behind the bench".

"He made an fantastic impact this season and I am so pleased that in his incredible career he finally gets a European trophy".

But if he stays at Old Trafford, that number is likely to fall next season with the club set to spend heavily on two forwards in the summer.

Wayne Rooney says he has "more or less" made a decision on his Manchester United future - but he won't reveal it for another two weeks.

The success in Sweden ensured the Reds qualified for next season's UEFA Champions League and secured a place in the UEFA Super Cup against either Juventus or Real Madrid on 8 August in Macedonia.

"You know, if you're asking me if I'm a better player now than I was 10 years ago, then obviously I'm not", he said. "We went out focused to win and we won for Manchester and the country", Pogba, who was also playing at the Stade de France on the night of the November 2015 Paris attacks, told BT Sport. "That's what it is all about".
