Europa League triumph more important than sport, says Manchester United great Beckham

25 May 2017

Man United fans paid tribute to the victims of the recent Manchester Arena terror attack ahead of the Europa League final on Wednesday evening.

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

"These things are awful all over the world, in London and in Paris".

"There are lot of poets in football but they don't win titles", he explained.

There was a minute's silence before the game and United players wore black armbands.

Manchester United are back to winning European trophies and back in the Champions League.

It is the second time that manager Jose Mourinho has lifted the trophy, following his success with Porto in 2003.

Armed police patrolled the perimeter of a ground that witnessed United's 64th match of a draining campaign, with the Europa League taking them more than 15,000 miles.

"Obviously both sides were affected (by the terrorist attack in Manchester), but once you play the final, for that moment you forget it".

The Amsterdammers have included teenagers Matthijs de Ligt and Kasper Dolberg in their line-up, with players such as Andre Onana, Davinson Sanchez, Jairo Riedewald and Bertrand Traore all 21 or younger.

He told RTL7: "We were simply not good enough".

United have won the UEFA Super Cup just once before, overcoming then European champions Crvena zvezda courtesy of a Brian McClair goal in 1991. "I think it was a boring game". Mourinho is slowly making a machine from the team, and with one or more of his new acquisition, we will probably get the biggest contender for the English Premier title.

"We did that very well from the first minute and we totally deserved the trophy".

United's travelling hordes erupted as Pogba punched his chest, celebrating a goal that captain Antonio Valencia soon attempted to add to with a driving run and shot.
