Manchester United Fans Sing Anti-ISIS Songs At The Europa League Final

Pogba pointed to the sky as he was mobbed by teammates after his 18th-minute opening goal.

A minute's silence was held before the game, which turned into applause, in honour of the 22 people killed and 64 injured in the blast at an Ariana Grande pop concert at the Manchester Arena the night before the team left for the final in Stockholm.

It was an uphill battle after that, made harder when Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored United's second three minutes after the break.

Ajax's efforts to close the gap went down the drain against a strong defensive effort by Manchester United, who won their first UEFA Europa League in their history.

"We wouldn't think twice", Mourinho said. "People say we've had a bad season but the prize is great and we've done it now".

It also means that Everton and Arsenal will be the only two representatives from the Premier League in the competition next season.

In his first season at the club, Mourinho led the Red Devils to the League Cup and the Europa League championship, one more trophy than his two predecessors - David Moyes and Louis van Gaal, who led the team to the FA Cup last season - managed during their short stints at the club combined.

Amy Edwards, a Manchester fan, was anxious about safety at the final, but said she refused to let fear control her life. We had to focus because it was a very important game and we won for them and for the country.

"I'm disappointed because you play finals to win them".

"Yesterday morning, we were devastated", United midfielder Ander Herrera said, dedicating the win to the victims, ". but the manager told us the only thing we could do was to win this for them.

The Armenia worldwide scored six goals for the club in the competition, including the decisive second against Ajax in the final, and has shown he can play in a variety of roles, ranging from right winger, to left winger, to a supporting striker.

Mkhitaryan's goal was much prettier, although it came from a direct route.

Mourinho's coaching staff flew out of the dugout in celebration but the Portuguese stayed calm.

Victory enabled United to complete a sweep of European trophies.

There wasn't quite the 120,000 estimated Ajax fans who flooded Amsterdam's Museum Square, but Manchester was awash with defiant United supporters amid a more sombre atmosphere.
