Eredivisie: Ajax will learn from Europa loss - Bosz

In the end, United's discipline and extra quality in the final third made the difference - along with a helpful slice of luck to break the deadlock. "We had to focus". I supported the team, but what matters is that we won. "We play for England, for Manchester and the people who died".

"The goal was to win all the way through this season. But if you'd told us at the start of the season we'd win three trophies and be in the Champions League we'd have taken it".

"Today was all or nothing - nearly nothing for us", Mata said, before smiling.

Europa League glory also means United join Ajax, Bayern Munich and Juventus as the only clubs to have won all three major UEFA trophies, including the now-defunct European Cup Winners' Cup, as well as the Club World Cup or the Intercontinental Cup.

"Our hearts and minds are with the victims", Mourinho said a day before the final. "There are many more things more important than football in life but we tried to win to lift the spirits of the town, at least for some hours".

"They were the first British club [to win it] obviously, that set the path", Ferguson said. We fought hard for this since the beginning.

Mourinho declined to say whether United's top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is sidelined with a long-term knee injury, would stay at the club but heaped praise on the towering Swede who watched the final behind the bench sporting crutches.

"The team was fantastic from the first minute to the last minute".

The Red Devils boss guided his team to a tactically shrewd win over Ajax and he wasted little time in rounding on his detractors.

In Stockholm, a city recovering from its own terrorist atrocity after a stolen truck was driven into pedestrians on a busy shopping street, killing five, the consensus was that the pre-match mood was somber.

Juan Mata's corner from the right was headed down by Chris Smalling and with his back to goal, Mkhitaryan held off Joel Veltman to flick the bouncing ball past Onana and claim his sixth goal in the competition.

Against an Ajax side that had garnered a lot of hype in the build-up to the match, United were able to physically impose themselves on the game from an early stage, defending efficiently against the Dutch side's attempts at intricate play.
