Ajax starting XI against Manchester United youngest ever in major European final

Ajax starting XI against Manchester United youngest ever in major European final

Henrikh Mkhitaryan, five of whose last six goals have come in the Europa League, and Paul Pogba, also made important contributions, but more so than on Wednesday, the Belgian international's influence in the home quarter-final tie with Anderlecht was especially crucial.

"We always thought that we could win the Europa League and we are very happy", Mourinho told BT Sport.

Should Ajax lose tonight they'll still have a chance to play Champions League football next season after finishing second in the league, just a point off Feyenoord.

"Ed Woodward has my analysis, what I want, what I would like for more than two months", Mourinho said. "It's just devastating news, but we won't be broken, we'll just carry on".

"As terrorists you have failed", read one message. "We. Are. Not". It is very hard against a team like that.

Goals from Paul Pogba and Henrick Mkhitaryan were enough to overcome a young Eredivisie side as United, wearing black armbands to honour the victims of the Ariana Grande concert bombing, defeated the Dutch team 2-0.

After sealing the victory in Europa League, formerly known as UEFA Cup, Man United have joined Ajax, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Juventus in an elite band of teams to have won all three UEFA's major club trophies, namely European Champion Clubs' Cup/Champions League, UEFA Cup/Europa League, and European Cup Winners' Cup.

In those same remarks, however, Pai made it clear what he thought of the FCC's adoption of Net Neutrality regulations in 2015. Of course, any type of regulations that set aside the rules of net neutrality are nearly certain to be challenged in court.

"We were fighting in two races: the Premier League and the Europa League. They will learn a lot from it and if we keep the squad together they will be stronger for it".

"This happened in Manchester but everywhere we need to have a united world to fight for peace and no more attacks and deaths please". "We scored early and by the time we got the second goal we [knew we had to] defend, defend, and defend".

Victory enabled Mourinho, who said prior to the game that he and his players were struggling not to think about the tragedy, to bring his maiden Old Trafford season to a successful conclusion. The club now has every title in world football.

"We tried our best to focus on the game".

There were even signs of naive nerves among Peter Bozs's young side as the very first action of the game saw Andre Onana get into a mix-up with Joel Veltman.

Mourinho's side dealt the killer blow immediately after the second half kicked off, Armenian worldwide Henrikh Mkhitaryan reacting quickest to a loose ball following a United corner.
