We will learn from United'sperformance, says Ajax coach

Following the match, numerous Manchester United players and manager Jose Mourinho expressed their joy in winning the title and dedicating it to the city.

They join Juventus, Ajax, Bayern Munich and Chelsea as the only clubs to have won the Champions League, the Europa League and the now defunct European Cup Winners' Cup.

"He s finished the season a bit better and I m sure he ll take that into next year".

Twenty-two people were killed and more than 100 others injured as a result of a suicide bomber attack following a concert by American pop star Ariana Grande.

"It has been a really hard week in the city of Manchester and we are happy to win for all the people that have suffered".

United will be in the Champions League and boss Jose Mourinho said executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has had his targets "for more than two months".

"It meant a lot for the club, for us, especially for the city of Manchester", he told reporters.

In 559 appearances for United since 2004/05, Rooney hit 253 goals and is the club's all-time record scorer ahead of the legendary Bobby Charlton.

Jesse Lingard admits that United failed to achieve their primary objectives of winning the Premier League and reaching the top four this season but reckons the squad has learned the lessons needed to help them push for the title next year.

But the pressure is on Mourinho to get the right players in, because fans might not be so tolerant of his pragmatic and often-defensive style the longer his reign goes on. I think I will try to have one of these jobs because you win every match.

"We have the honour of going to the European Super Cup to play the Champions League victor".

"Obviously, we were really, really sad about what happened".

Team-mate Smalling echoed those sentiments, adding: "I think there was an extra determination".

Rooney made his own personal pledge alongside the £1 million collective donation by United and their neighbours Manchester City.
