Man United Beats Ajax 2-0, Wins Europa League

25 May 2017

"We know we could have done better in the Premier League so to finish the season by winning the League Cup and the Europa League is fantastic".

Manchester United have won the 2016-17 Europa League title courtesy of a 2-0 win against Ajax in the final at the Friends Arena in Stockholm this evening.

Mkhitaryan then flicked the ball home early in the second half following a corner and, with chants of "Manchester, Manchester" echoing around the stadium, United held on to win the one European trophy missing from the Old Trafford cabinet. We were much stronger than them. I am very happy in my most hard season as a manager.

Jose Mourinho remains hopeful Wayne Rooney will stay at Manchester United and is adamant the experienced attacker remains a key figure. "They put on a block and stayed away from everything and concentrated on a football match, which we did very well". If we could we would change peoples lives for this cup - we would not think twice.

United have already won the League Cup this term but only finished sixth in the Premier League and failed to successfully defend the FA Cup they won last season.

Speaking of transfers in the summer, Mourinho said: "Ed Woodward has my list, what I want, what I would like for more than two months". I agree with the UEFA decision to play the match but obviously the tragedy that occurred takes some of the happiness from our achievement. We came here with one option - to win the trophy that the club had never won and we did it so we are happy.

It later annexed east Jerusalem in a move never recognised by the worldwide community and claims the entire city as its capital. Israeli officials are on edge over the U.S refusal to say the Western Wall is part of Israel.

"We wanted to get back into the Champions League, but not by finishing third or fourth in the Premier League".

Both sides observed a minute's silence ahead of the match, with the crowd applauding in tribute to the victims, and the players also wore black armbands. United's players stood up and were counted. His crucial goal had a huge element of fortune to it, though.

The shot was sent looping past Onana in the Ajax goal, thanks to a huge deflection from Davinson Sanchez.

Mourinho's side dealt the killer blow immediately after the second half kicked off, Armenian global Henrikh Mkhitaryan reacting quickest to a loose ball following a United corner.
