United players celebrate Europa League win

But the world goes on and does not stop and we have to do our work.

"I agree with UEFA's decision to play the match but, you know, if we have questions like your question (about the importance of winning the game for the city) that made us return to this tragedy, obviously it takes happiness from our achievement".

"Yesterday morning we were devastated we were really, really sad because when you think about life and football you have no choice, it was hard to train yesterday, really, really hard for us".

The EFL Cup win was welcome but it was not enough to keep Manuel Pellegrini in favour at Manchester City.

Job done, just about.

"To be honest, over the last few years, if you'd have said we've won four trophies in the last two years, then you would have thought 'where are those trophies going to come from?'"

"We just came to do our job and the boys were fantastic because they blocked (it out), they put a wall in front of their eyes and they stay isolated from everything".

Ajax hogged the ball for the rest of the match but rarely looked like getting past United, who saw the game out to preserve Mourinho's 100 percent record in European finals and deliver the continental trophy missing from their collection.

"It means a lot as it is my first European trophy with United and after what happened yesterday, it is nice to bring a trophy back for Manchester".

The former Sweden worldwide was pleased to see his team add to the Community Shield and EFL Cup crowns they had already secured this season.

In Mourinho's first season at Old Trafford, he has guided the team to two trophies - the League Cup in February - and a place in next season's Champions League, the bonus prize for winning the Europa League. The Europa League is also a competition United have never won, which adds to its importance. The club now has every title in world football. The Italian side won all three trophies in the space of nine seasons in the 1970s and 80s. "But if we could, we'd change the peoples' lives for this cup. But I don't care about football for now".

"We are very happy".

"I think I understand what's right and what's needed for the club, and I respect that". Even José Mourinho - who, like many of us, considered the Europa League to be beneath him - celebrated with rarely seen abandon. "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". They were more experienced and physically stronger.

However, one senior club source said the forthcoming transfer window was likely to be "crazy", given the increased spending power within the Premier League as a result of the new £8.3bn TV deal and clubs such as Inter Milan and AC Milan willing to spend big to try to rediscover former glories.
