Man United beat Ajax to claim Europa League title

This resulted in an unbeaten 2-0 win over Manu, As well as the fifth team in history, three European champions (UEFA Europa League, Champions League and Club World Cup) have the distinction of being the champions of all major tournaments. It seeps out of every pore.

Mourinho's post-match interview, in which he admitted relishing the chance to activate "holiday mode", hinted at the strain he has been under to deliver this season, whether self-inflicted or not. "In the scheme of things, the game doesn't matter". And thanks to a starting lineup costing almost €300 million, the Red Devils will be returning to Europe's greatest competition. The atmosphere in the stadium was fantastic, we were still emotionally drained at the final whistle and our thoughts are still with people who lost their lives.

Rooney now says he needs to decide if he wants to continue performing in the team or else go off in search of more regular opportunities. Also, chipping golf balls into a washing machine and we finally discover just how hard is Colm ParkinsonHave a look, it's all good.

There wasn't quite the 120,000 estimated Ajax fans who flooded Amsterdam's Museum Square, but Manchester was awash with defiant United supporters amid a more sombre atmosphere.

Speaking following United's Europa League final triumph, the 31-year-old revealed he plans to make a decision on his future in the next fortnight. Obviously I'm happy to be part of that and in some way help the club win trophies and that's the way it's been over the last 18 months. "It will just say "United".

"I said last time (in March) that he was a bit short of matches - he's had some matches now but we've got players that have done really, really well for us in Adam Lallana and Dele Alli".

"These attacks have hurt everybody".

A minute's silence held for the victims of Monday's suicide bombing at a pop concert in Manchester in which 22 people died turned into applause as chants of "Manchester" and "We'll Never Die" bellowed out from the English supporters before the match.

Mourinho later actually also wore the same outfit against Southampton in the penultimate game of the Premier League season, but he has now confirmed that his choice to wear it both times against Chelsea was indeed very deliberate. I'm happy that I scored here today in the final because everyone was saying, "You're going to score in the final" and after the last game against Celta Vigo I was dreaming about scoring in the final and I did. We want peace in the world.

"Especially after what happened (in Manchester) we wanted to win this and we'll bring the trophy back", he said.

"Now I don't want to see any football, or any worldwide friendlies".
