Manchester United wins Europa League 2017

Rio Ferdinand is convinced that Paul Pogba has been weighed down by his hefty price tag at Manchester United this season.

"I want to dedicate the trophy to the victims", the Spanish midfielder told a press conference.

"Now it is like Ajax and some other clubs with every trophy in the world of football, so it means everything". "We pray for peace".

Manchester United put on huge pressure after the opening whistle on the Dutch side, who nearly gifted their opponents a lead one minute into the game.

"It was the game of the season", he said. "Because we couldn't talk about a good season if we didn't win it".

"If we could, we would change obviously the people's lives for this cup - immediately, we wouldn't think twice".

"I knew people who were at the concert, so it's not easy, it's not a nice moment - not just for Manchester but for the whole of England, and we all felt that".

United were utterly dominant, but as with everything they do, the performance of Pogba came under the microscope after the game.

Jose Mourinho's more experienced side overpowered Ajax across the 90 minutes, conceding possession but denying their opponents the space they needed to play their passing game.

"Sometimes when I stop and look back I did a lot of things", he said.

United's talismanic manager Jose Mourinho has a knack of winning trophies in the first season in charge, and once again he made an impact immediately.

"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".

Blind reflected on the bad events in Manchester over the past week and dedicated the win to the city, "Of course, we think of the awful events in Manchester. We did that very well from the first minute and we totally deserve the trophy".

Manchester United remain relaxed about Rooney's situation, with the club happy for him to stay but also prepared to offload his high earnings onto a new recruit. I am so happy to see the [injured] boys with the crutches with the trophy and now I am on holiday.

Manchester United beat Ajax 2-0 with goals from both halves from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

They got their hands on the much-coveted Community Shield last August before the definitely-not-Mickey-Mouse EFL Cup arrived in February.

"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".
