Manchester United Players get touch of Europa League trophy on flight back

Manchester United's Europa League victory gave the city a boost just two days after a devastating suicide bomb attack left 22 dead and dozens injured, claimed legendary former manager Alex Ferguson.

United wore black armbands and observed a minute's silence during last night's Europa League final against Ajax, while City's women's team will do the same in the Spring Series match this evening (Thursday May 25).

Despite telling French television that he rated his chances of moving to Manchester United a "six out of ten" earlier this week, Griezmann poured some cold water on the speculation linking him to Old Trafford tweeting that the rumours concerning his future were unfounded.

"It was all or nothing and as we won its fair to say its been a good season, three trophies, we're in the Champions League next season so we're very happy".

"I regret not being able to play this game".

"We played for England, we played for Manchester and we played for the people who died". "I don't want to see any worldwide friendlies, I am selfish".

Manchester United has won all trophies.

But Mourinho was defiant, insisting that Champions League qualification remained the target for the club. We come without the happiness that we should bring with us because when you come for these big matches, you go happy, you go proud and we didn't. The club now has every title in world football.

"It means everything. It means the third trophy, it means going back to the Champions League, it means winning a European trophy, it means playing European Super League in Macedonia next August".

"I don't think so, honestly". It is the end of a very hard season. "We only got second balls", he said. "If you are asking me if I am a better player now than I was 10 years ago then obviously I am not but I still feel I have got other qualities that can help the team".

Mourinho told BT Sport after the final whistle on Wednesday he would be "happy" if his captain decides to stay.
