Paul Pogba said that the team were proud to have won the Europa League for Manchester, after winning 2-0 against Ajax.
It was the 24-year-old that scored the first goal in the game, although the deflection off Davinson Sanchez helped it pass the Ajax goalkeeper. Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored early into the second half to cement a further lead.
The Europa League final came two days after a bomb attack took place at a concert in the city of Manchester, which left 22 people dead and 64 others injured.
Pogba spoke to BT Sport after the game, praising the performance from everyone in the team:
We did it. We are very proud. Nobody can talk. They said we had a bad season but we have three trophies (including Community Shield). The start was important and after the goals we controlled the game. Great performance from everybody in the team.
The Frenchman also spoke about how they were focused on winning for Manchester after the attack:
These things are terrible all over the world, in London and in Paris. We went out focused to win and we won for Manchester and the country.
José Mourinho said that he’s happy that Man United reached the Champions League through the final instead of from their league position:
It is the end of a very difficult season. But a very, very good season.
We preferred to reach the Champions League this way than finish fourth, third or second. We got the objective, we are back in the Champions League by winning a title, an important title. The club now has every title in world football. We fought hard for this since the beginning.
Manchester United will join Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City in the Champions League next season, with Liverpool needing to win a play-off match to make it five English teams in the competition.
