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

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

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.

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.
