United's Europa league win gave Manchester a lift, says Ferguson

Pogba, who moved to Manchester aged 16 to join United's set up and returned last summer from Juventus for a world record 89 million pounds ($115.41 million) fee, added: "We know things like this are very sad all over the world".

Jose Mourinho's team won 2-0 in Stockholm thanks to goals from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan either side of half-time.

"We are very happy".

Mourinho admitted that his first term at Man United was his "most hard season as a manager" and says, with three trophies under his belt, he will now take a deserved rest.

"Yesterday we didn't want to have the press conference because we had to prepare ourselves to do our job and to try to forget events which are much more important than our job", he said referrring to the decision to cancel the news conference.

"Tonight was more important than sport", ex-United player Beckham said.

As the Red Devils did not play in the Champions League this season, it comes as a relief to the 35-year-old that the victory in the Europa League booked them a place in the next season's Champions League.

Ander Herrera has revealed that Jose Mourinho told Manchester United's players that all they could do was win the Europa League final in the wake of Monday night's attack in Manchester.


He said: "I'm disappointed because you play finals to win them. But if you'd told us at the start of the season we'd win three trophies and be in the Champions League we'd have taken it".

It means going back to the Champions League and playing in the European Super Cup next August. "True. But I can say good luck to my former team-mates".

'Does this cup make the city of Manchester a little bit happier?

"We are in the Champions League in the right way and for me the right way is winning the Premier League or winning the Europa League". Maybe. But we just came to do our job. We were unlucky to concede that early goal, because that allowed United to sit even deeper.

"Wayne Rooney was ready to play, he was a big option". We all wanted to win.

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

"It's one of the trophies I haven't won in my career and it would be wonderful to win it with United", former Chelsea favourite Mata said.
