Jose Mourinho: Manchester will pull together after bomb attack

United finished sixth in the Premier League, but are one win away from the Champions League as they take on Ajax in Wednesday's Europa Final in Stockholm, Sweden.

Winning the Europa League would give United a place in the Champions League for next season, and Fosu-Mensah added: 'This is Manchester United and it's a big club.

The Ajax players and staff take part in a minute's silence in memory of the victims of the Manchester Concert attack ahead of the UEFA Europa League Final between Ajax and Manchester United.

It also provokes a hard question, especially after the incident ahead of Borussia Dortmund's Champions League quarter-final with Monaco earlier this season. Jose Mourinho's teams don't play exciting football, they never have done.

Bayern Munich, Juventus, Chelsea and this evening's opponents Ajax are the only other four teams who have completed the continental treble.

Funnily enough, Rahsofrd at the age of 19-years-old may feel a mature pro when lining up against Ajax's side tonight, with the Eredivisie side fielding XI's where the oldest player - Davy Klaassen - is 24 in recent weeks.

I would send my players directly to the doctor if they weren't nervous, especially because it's their first final. "He burst on the scene last season, the second season is always harder but I think he's handled things really well and hopefully he'll be the big threat for us tonight".

"It's been a hard year for him (Mourinho) but it's a massive game tonight and they need to get into the Champions League then be competitive next year as well".

The Amsterdam club made history in their final league game of the season when, with the title on the line, they named the youngest side in the history of the Dutch top flight. And it's a nice game, a Europa League final. If ever we needed a game to remind us what is so good about sport - this is one and it is surely going to be a thriller.

Although Ajax go into Wednesday's match as underdogs, coach Peter Bosz says that means the pressure will be off.
