Manchester United beat Ajax to win Europa League

Wednesday night saw Rooney lift a third trophy of the season after United beat Ajax 2-0 in the Europa League final, but his introduction as a late substitute underlines how his status has changed. Big names are likely to arrive at Old Trafford before then as United look to win the Premier League for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired four years ago.

After a 15-match European traverse from Odessa and Ukraine in the east to Vigo on Spain's western Atlantic coast, United were the 2016/17 Europa League winners.

"I think I am going to have one of these jobs in a few years".

Manchester United might not have won this trophy with any great pizzazz, but there was no doubt that they were always in control, ending the competition as deserving champions.

"So the season was the victory of pragmatism and the people who respect the opponent and try to exploit the opponents' weakness".

"A victory based on humble principles".

It would be wrong to question Mourinho's pedigree as a football manager, as he won yet another trophy on Wednesday evening, but his levels of hypocrisy are unrivalled.

The win preserved Mourinho's flawless record in major European finals, adding to his 2003 UEFA Cup victory with FC Porto, and his Champions League triumphs with the same club in 2004 and Inter Milan in 2010.

Final results confirm Macron wins French presidential election
The left-wing paper Liberation said he was "under pressure", even before his inauguration which is set to take place next Sunday. But a high number of blank or spoiled votes and unusually low turnout are signs of an electorate dissatisfied with its choices.

"To me, it is the most important trophy of my career because it is the last", he told the assembled media. The first game of next season will be against either Juventus or Real Madrid - whichever team wins the Champions League - in the European Super Cup in Skopje, Macedonia, on August 8.

"I haven't seen the Ajax that I'm used to, which means good football, high pressing and being dominant".

United can seldom have played many more pivotal games.

But having fielded a team with an average age of 22 years and 282 days, the youngest to ever start a major European final, he expressed hope they would be better for the experience.

"They were the first British club [to win it] obviously, that set the path", Ferguson said.

Bosz, in his first season, has revived the club - although they did finish second in the Dutch top flight - and is preaching the principles which originate from Johan Cruyff, the club's former player and coach.

Mourinho hasn't, in the words the song United fans have made their own since January "got United playing the way that they should", but this season has been an improvement on the soporific offerings served up by Louis van Gaal's side. More than 35,000 are scheduled to take part, with organisers saying they had to turn away thousands of new applications this week.
