We played for the people who died, says Man United's Pogba

We played for the people who died, says Man United's Pogba

"I want to dedicate this trophy to the victims".

"It is just football and what happened two days ago was disgusting. This happened in Manchester but it could everywhere and we need a united world to fight for peace".

The planned pre-match one minute's silence rapidly turned into 60 seconds of applause, during which United's fans chanted "Manchester, Manchester" for the first time.

"Many in Holland said it was not possible for a Dutch team to play in the final because the financial difference in Europe between the big clubs and the Dutch clubs is so big now, but we managed it", Ajax manager Peter Bosz told a media conference over the weekend.

United's victory gives Czech Cup winners FC Fastav Zlin a direct route to the Europa League group stage.

"I agree with the UEFA decision to play the match, but if we had questions, like your question, that made us return to this tragedy, obviously it takes happiness from our achievement".

"We have been in contact with our English as well as Dutch colleagues and they are helping us with information, they are visiting us tomorrow, and we are quite satisfied with how we are prepared and the information that we get".

"It's just a football game, it's just a trophy, but if we can help or if we can support them with this just one per cent it's enough for us".

Trump tells Pope Francis: 'I won't forget what you said'
So here's what we know about the third stop on President Trump's tour of major Abrahamic religion sites. President Trump's first foreign jaunt brought him to the Vatican on Wednesday morning.

To watch Ajax v Manchester United on BT Sport, the coverage starts on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport Ultra HD at 7pm on May 24, 2017.

Rob Coppen, a 28-year-old Ajax fan from Amsterdam donning the team's kit, said the terror attack took the joy out of the final. "This is a time now that I will go and spend with my family, there's decisions I have to make and I'll do that over the next few weeks". United could've killed it off when Fellaini leapt to meet Pogba's cross just past the hour, though his header was straight at Onana.

And more importantly, the victory will see them qualify into next seasons Champions League despite finishing 6th in this seasons Premier League campaign.

It also provokes a hard question, especially after the incident ahead of Borussia Dortmund's Champions League quarter-final with Monaco earlier this season. "We were always confident that we would win", said George Malloy, a 69-year-old from Dublin.

"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". It mattered little though as the Reds claimed a famous win as "Manchester, Manchester, Manchester" echoed around the stadium, and you felt it could be heard all the way back to our inspirational city.

"We were really, really sad because you think about life and football and it's not choice".

"These things are bad all over the world, in London and in Paris", said Pogba, who was also playing at the Stade de France on the night of the November 2015 Paris terror attacks.
