Poets don´t win titles - Mourinho defiant after Ajax criticise Manchester United approach

Ajax captain Davy Klaassen was unimpressed with Manchester United's tactics as the English side ran out 2-0 winners in the Europa League final.

Two goals were enough to win United the Europa League title - and with the biggest prize, a route into the 2017-2018 Champions League.

Say what you want about Jose Mourinho, he's done what he joined Manchester United to do. "It was very sombre flying [to Stockholm] over with the directors - it was all we were talking about".

"My condolences to all families of the victims in Manchester and to all families who are losing loved ones in so many countries due to acts of violence", Pogba said.

We are again questioning you, was this a bad season for Manchester United?

ON A WEEK in which football has paled in significance to the tragic events in Manchester, the city's most famous football team showed admirable character to deliver an accomplished performance that contained plenty of nous and enough quality under hard circumstances.

An additional 1.5 million euros is up for grabs for each win in the Champions League group stage, while reaching the last 16 would bring an extra windfall of 16 million euros.

The win also ensures Jose Mourinho is the first manager to win both the Europa Cup and UEFA Champions League a few times. Manchester United, on the other hand, have only managed to finish sixth in the Premier League, making a win here the only way to qualify to Europe's elite tournament next year.

United's goal was just reward for a bright start that soon tapered off, only for Mourinho's men to return impressively from the break as Mkhitaryan directed home acrobatically.

"That's why yesterday we didn't want to have the press conference because we had to prepare ourselves to do our job and to try to forget events that are obviously much more important than our job". We only got second balls. "And when you are not on top of your game, it is very hard".

The post Mourinho Ecstatic After United's Europa Triumph Despite "Difficult Season" appeared first on Complete Sports Nigeria. "They will learn a lot from it and if we keep the squad together they will be stronger for it".

Mourinho's side dealt the killer blow immediately after the second half kicked off, Armenian global Henrikh Mkhitaryan reacting quickest to a loose ball following a United corner.

"This is one aspect of the game they were better at".
