United's Europa league win gave Manchester a lift, says Ferguson

May 26, 2017, 09:52

It obviously takes happiness from our achievement.

"We felt the suffering and the sadness of the city of Manchester and we tried to give this trophy for them".

He has played in 32 league matches for the club this season and has helped them to win the Eredivisie on three occasions, as well as one Johan Cruyff Shield. The boys were fantastic.

Speaking at a post-match news conference after being named man of the match, Herrera said: "On Monday morning we were devastated".

"This happened in Manchester but everywhere we need to have a united world to fight for peace and no more attacks and deaths please".

"We are very disappointed". Manchester - we won for them.

"We played for the people who died", Pogba told BT Sport. "Yesterday morning we were devastated", the midfielder said. We were really sad because when you think about life and football, there is no choice. Maybe. But we just came to do our job.

In sporting terms, though, this was a key victory at the end of an arduous 64-game season for United.

He had already guided United to glory in the League Cup and despite a sixth-place finish in the Premier League, success in the Europa League means his side will return to the Champions League next season.

Goalscorer Pogba also dedicated the win to the city.

"We totally deserved the win". "There are a lot of emotions but I think you have to take those emotions and turn them into a positive". United has also won the EFL Cup this season.

"I can't dress it up any other way - other players are in really good form and deserve to keep their place".

"I knew people who were at the concert, so it's not easy, it's not a nice moment - not just for Manchester but for the whole of England, and we all felt that. But I don't care about football for now".

Honestly, it's like they've never watched Mourinho manage before.

"I work hard. I'll be back in a few weeks", he told Sky Italia before addressing queries about his future by stating: "We'll have to see".

What does he do with Wayne Rooney, United's captain and record scorer whose best days are behind him? "He can be here next season and he is an important player".

"This was, I would say, more special than any other trophy because of that", the Spain global said.
